LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Owner of two shot huskies should take responsibility

It is typical nowadays to make a mistake and blame somebody else, says letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Owner says family devastated after learning Errington huskies were shot, killed, March 6

First, I have to say that I do not know any of those parties. But reading the article I felt that I must stand up and say: It is typical in today’s days. You made a mistake but let’s blame somebody else. Your dogs were not under your control – period. But you have the audacity to doubt how the event went although you were not there. Furthermore, you’re blaming them for not letting you know? You want them to go from door-to-door to find the irresponsible owner? Although to find your dogs you could do the same? As there are laws to protect your livestock, there are also laws of decent behavior. Guess which ones you broke? To own up to a responsibility that’s yours and yours only.
