Letter: Watchful neighbours important

Animal rights are as paramount as all human rights

Watchful neighbours important

I would like to convey my deepest gratitude to the watchful eyes of the concerned neighbours near the Shawnigan Lake property with the neglected cattle recently brought to light.

Without you atrocities like this would go unnoticed. Through your brave actions these lovely creatures have been given a second chance.

Animal rights are as paramount as all human rights. We are their voices for decency and I applaud you!

Also my deepest gratitude goes to the BCSPCA for your gallant rescues and perseverance of ensuring prosecution of those who violate animal rights.

To the owner of the property on Shawnigan Lake — I hope that the courts ensure indictment for your choices and for all others to take heed.

We are watching…
