Crimes against animals are just as serious as crimes against people

A very disturbing incident took place in Ponoka over the weekend. A dead cat was found hanging from a light post in downtown Ponoka. The cat had strands of wiring wrapped around its neck and it is suspected that it was done sometime early Saturday morning.

Happy Wednesday after Election Day Ponoka! If you woke up this week and realized that the Conservatives were re-elected and you didn’t vote and are unhappy with this whose fault is that?

Even though I don’t have to shovel snow or scrape frosty windows in the morning anymore, or even punch a time clock, I’m am still looking forward to yet another spring with great gusto.
