Shame on you, whoever dumped out five helpless kittens barely weaned on Cora Caudill Road. We have an animal shelter that will come pick up unwanted animals at your convenience.

But you say, “They’ll be killed.” Well, what would be worse than slowly starving to death? Maybe hit by cars or eaten by predators? Do you hear their little cries for food? I hope they haunt you.

Somebody is always setting out animals with no clue how to fend for themselves. Proverbs say a wise man regards his animals.

Please, if you don’t want these animals, your tax dollars pay for the Wilkes County Animal Shelter. Call them, or better yet go to the Wilkes County Library and pick up a form that will help you with spaying or neutering your pets.

Willful abandonment of an animal is a class 2 misdemeanor offense in North Carolina.
