To the Editor:
On Monday, Oct. 1, I was eating my dinner when I got a call from my friend Eleni, who was walking her dog at Veterans’ Stadium. She heard a crying sound and went to see what it was. It was a black-and-white puppy, about six months old, tied with a rope around its neck to a fence. As she was talking to me, my friend Niel was at my home, so I was telling him what happened. He went down to the park to see what was up. He went up to the dog, which was so friendly. I guess it was thankful that someone was going to save her.
While Niel was there, a black rabbit came out of the bushes and hopped to Niel and the dog. Niel picked up the rabbit, which was also very friendly and was not afraid of the dog. So I guess the rotten uncaring person who abandoned the dog also abandoned the rabbit. The dog was very skinny. Niel took the rabbit and the cops took the dog to the station because Animal Control never came after the cops waited an hour.
I called the C.A.R.E., the Animal League, but I got a tape recording. They were a lot of help! I’m writing this because I am so, so angry about these miserable people that abuse their pets and just leave them tied up to fences. By writing this, maybe someone will read it and someone might know who owned a black-and-white pit bull puppy and black rabbit and just left them to suffer until someone found them at Vets. And what became of the puppy after the cops took it? Maybe we can tie the owner to the fence. I am very, very upset about this poor puppy and rabbit left to suffer.
