Give SPCA?more power

March 5, 2012

Dear Sir,

I think the SPCA needs more powers to prosecute it does now, as in other countries. There was no doubt in the recent court case that an animal was neglected. But the magistrate was willing to send the dog back to the person (not necessarily the owner) who allegedly neglected the poor creature in the first place. This really made no sense at all, and I can’t understand the logic behind such a decision. There’s a pit bull running around St George’s at the moment killing cats. When the dog warden was called he suggested that the complainant catch the dog, tie it up, and then contact the warden for him to pick the animal up. Now I ask you, how stupid is that? If the dog wardens can’t do their jobs, then the SPCA should be given the responsibility, and the funding too.
