Voice of Scotland; Animals Need Our Care, Not Cruelty
I was disgusted at the sentence Shaheed Saleem received for his cruel treatment of Tyson the bull mastiff.
Three months is nothing. He should have got three years - six months of it without food or water. - C. Anderson, Midlothian.
THE picture of the bull mastiff starved to death was horrific. No animal deserves to suffer like that.
Congratulations to the SSPCA for tracking down the heartless, cruel so- called human being who did this. - Disgusted, Kinross.

I'm appalled that Labour are taking the imprisonment of Deirdre Rachid from Coronation Street seriously.

I AGREE entirely with reader L. Harris that the fuss over Deirdre Rachid is ridiculous. MPs should do the job they're paid to do instead of worrying about some soap character. - Nellie Rogers, Edinburgh.
I read with disgust about the proposal to paint fire engines white.
These Eurocrats seem to do nothing but decide new ways to destroy our Great British traditions. As a retired member of the fire services I would consider it a sad day when the trusty red machines disappear from our streets. They have come to represent hope and dependability to those in need. - B. Prentice, South Queensferry.
