Letters: Richmond's rabbit killers need fines, not education

Dear Editor,

Re: “Rabbit owner warns of off-leash dog ‘attack’ at Richmond park,” News, July 30.

Sadly, loose dogs are often allowed (and even encouraged) by their owners to chase the abandoned pet rabbits that inhabit so many areas in Richmond.

Our resources are being overwhelmed by the number of injured rabbit calls coming into our rescue, many because of dogs.

Bylaw and cruelty officers should be responding to complaints and the leashing bylaws enforced. 

These owners are well aware of what they’re doing. They don’t need education, they need consequences.
