I was watching the noon news on CTV Ottawa today, and Michael O’Byrne announced that a pit bull had killed a shih tzu which was being walked by a little boy in the south end of the city.
I thought, what a sad story. Also, I thought there was a law against pit bulls being allowed outside without a muzzle.
I was pondering all this when the station rolled tape of the attack.
CTV Ottawa actually showed the pitbull killing the shih tzu. I could even hear the poor little dog screaming.
I was absolutely outraged and horrified that a) someone had recorded the attack instead of trying to save the dog and b) the station had the audacity to run the clip.
There are children out there who will see this eating their supper tonight. There will be people watching who know that family, who saw the boy walk the dog everyday. People don’t need to see this kind of violence.
Who is in charge at CTV Ottawa?
Do they have no compassion, no morals, no taste?
We did not need to see this violent attack to know how it went down.
If you agree with me, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and complain.
Thank you for listening.
