Re: “Call for mass extermination of dogs is cowardly and illogical”, Have Your Say, yesterday.
We didn’t have long to wait for Eric Bahrt’s expected response to the letter from Enough of Dogs. I support Bahrt’s assertion that this lunatic should not be allowed to get his garbage published. Freedom of expression is one of the pillars of a society but messages of unjustified hatred and violence have no place in a decent newspaper. I echo Bahrt’s comment that “man’s best friend” has proven its incredible value to humans over and over again – as guard, protector, in war, as guide for the handicapped, and as simple companion. A world without dogs would be an empty one indeed.
