LETTER: Tough sentences needed for animal cruelty

I HAVE read items in the paper regarding the dogs trained in the parks. It has been going on for years, so has dog fighting.

It is barbaric yet no-one does anything about it. Stop the breeders, those caught with any dog used for fighting, and sentence them to a minimum of 10 years.

Also the lovely cats that went missing “Noki and Stevie”, I am glad she has got them back as it is known these evil dog owners sometimes steal cats for baiting.

This country is far too soft when it comes to animals.
