!!!WARNING TO ALL SMALLHOLDERS!!
« on: September 27, 2009, 07:28:15 pm »
Last night (Sat 26) someone set :censored: fire to one of my hen houses,

Killing all three occupants, :bouquet:

Actions look delibarate as our other two neighbours had sheds and other various equipment torched,

Just to let everyone know to be more on the look for smoke or fire etc,
 No-one should wake up and find what i did!

No descriptions but happened early morning

Cameron, words cannot express my outrage, anger, disgust at the low lifes that would do such a cowardly act. I am sorry to read about your loss and I hope these barbaric animals get their just!!! What did the police say. I will be keeping an eye out now, thanks for the warning and please do not let these diabolic people win and stop you keeping your animals. What an outrage!

b*st*rds! Some people have no idea have they?  Sorry for your losses, and the costs (emotionally and financially) are something those idiots just don't consider.

Oh my God, I can't believe what I've just read - I don't understand the human race sometimes.  I am so so sorry and just hope these people are found and are duly punished.

Chances are no-one will be found as any chance of evidence was destroyed, i hope they will be found but i'm not counting on it.

How dreadful, Cameron.  I have smoke alarms outside in my sheds, but must check the batteries.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

So sorry, that is terrible.  Someone torched stables killing all the horses not far from here.  You do wonder what sort of people are out there, and what sort of mind they have (sick probably)

But it rarely does. There is a morning programme on BBC1 24/7 or something it is called. Today they showed you an adult Alsation found in the most awful condition. It's ribs were sticking through, it was so weak it couldn't stand and it had very, very little fur. He was so weak he could hardly open his eyes. The vets did not expect this dog to pull through but he did and was successfully rehomed. The original owner who inflicted this animal to such a horrendous life was banned for keeping pets for 25 years and fined £250 - woopeedoo!!! That's punishment!

I saw that this morning James, cried my eyes out  :'(
It makes me so sad, but at the same time sooo mad  >:(
In this country such a low price is put on life (whether human or animal) and until there's a REAL deterrent in place, this will continue.

Cameron, why don't you contact the local newspaper and tell  them your awful story. Perhaps they would run a story and ask anyone wwith any information re the crime to name and shame the crooks? Let local people know what wrotten, cruel people there are going about ;ocally.
