A loathsome act

SoVaNow.com / April 17, 2014


Dear Viewpoint:

At 10:30 this Saturday morning I watched someone deliberately drive over a dog. It was on Main St., in front of the Bass House. A small brown dog was running loose in the street. The car ahead of me, a dark SUV, was continually slowing and stopping as the dog ducked around the vehicle. Finally, the driver honked his horn and then, apparently having lost patience, drove directly over the dog’s back, leaving it screaming and writhing in the street. By the time I got my wits about me, the car had turned onto Barbour and was gone. The dog perished in agony.

I hope someone has some clue about who did such a cowardly, loathsome thing. This person needs to be reported to the police...at the very least.
