Letters: Animal dumping is wrong

Dumping chickens in rural area is cruel and unnecessary

On Friday, January 16 at approximately 3:30 p.m., somebody drove up Farmer Road to the top of Tregear road, and literally dumped their live chickens off. Three live chickens were dumped off up there to fend for themselves.

I took my dog up there for a walk like I do everyday. When I returned January 17 for my walk, there was three chickens.

I witnessed one chicken being brutally attacked by a large raven while the other two took cover. The raven kept jumping on this poor innocent chicken to harm it so bad, that it could barely walk. I chased the raven away, and the other two chickens came out from hiding.

Whoever did this, I hope you’re happy with yourself for what you did to these innocent birds. If they weren’t laying eggs anymore, all you had to do was post it on Used Victoria and I’m sure somebody out there would of loved to take these innocent birds in.

Lucky for them, somebody came and picked them up and gave them a nice home instead of fending for themselves where there are bears and cougars roaming around. At least they are in a safe and happy environment now.

Tregear Road is not a dump site for live animals, garbage or whatever else people are too lazy to take to the dump. What next is going to be dumped there? A horse or maybe a cow? Who knows maybe a donkey or some little piglets?

So, if you don’t want your animals anymore, don’t dump them on somebody else’s property. Take them to the SPCA or give them away on Used Victoria.
