LETTER: Free bed for forest animals

Well it’s happened again.

Some dumper got the great idea of dumping a queen bed with box spring in the ditch on top of Tregear Road. It was a nice job of dumping: back up to the ditch, push the bed out of the truck, and drive away.

Don’t you think maybe somebody out there in the community could made good use of the bed, instead of dumping it there for the animals of the forest?

I’m sure that our friends of the forest don’t need a bed to lie on to go to sleep at night, but they might enjoy it.

This bed has been up there now for about two weeks.

I’m tired of looking at things the Sooke dumpers keep dumping on the side of roads and on people’s property without there permission.

Let’s try to put an end to illegal dumping – start giving out hefty fines.

Cindy Hehn, Sooke
