Don’t forget the little boy in Cane story

With all the support for saving the dog from being put down, a Terrace boy and what he went through is being ignored.

Dear Sir:

In all of the drama that has been surrounding the seizure of Cane, and what has happened to him, I wonder who is worried about the little boy that was walking with his mother that was bitten.

I notice there are many people to jump on the save Cane bandwagon, but where is the consideration for the innocent children that were bitten?

For all the people on the bandwagon that state their love of animals, why are you not outraged and asking for help for the little boy bitten.

Here is a four-year-old boy that was walking along his street holding his mother’s hand when he was attacked and bitten from behind.

He then watched as Cane let go of him and chased down his six-year-old brother walking a few feet ahead, knocked him to the ground and stood on him.

Here is a little boy that is now terrified of dogs.  All dogs.  Why are we not helping him?   Here is a little boy that may never know the joy of loving animals the way that you claim to, because an irresponsible pet owner allowed his dog to roam the streets, and that dog eventually attacked.

That is the true tragedy in this whole situation.  A little boy of five may never know the unconditional love of a puppy!

If this little boy had parents other than the ones that he does, he could grow up to be someone who abuses animals out of fear.

Everyone seems so quick to judge those trying to protect him (regional district) and others, but no one has reached out a helping hand to him.

What about reaching out to the family.

They moved because their kids were too scared to go outside and play afterwards.

No one offered to pay for their moving costs.

I wonder how many took into consideration their feelings when they were personally attacked in public with half-truths and innuendoes. Not many have taken into account the costs of all of this on an innocent family that was out for a spring walk in their neighborhood when their life changed forever through no fault of their own.
