Trinis' cruelty to animals must stop
As one traverses the highways and minor roads (of our nation), one would notice the roadsides littered with the carcasses of dogs and sometimes even cats.
Driving to Maracas with my foreign relatives, we saw a dead dog at the side of the road, and judging from its condition—it appeared to have been there for some days.
My cousin, with tears in his eyes, asked why is it that in Trinidad we seem to have become immune to this suffering and death around us. Embarrassed, I told him unfortunately that is the culture of our nation.
Wake up Trinidadians! We are one of the most developed countries in the Caribbean, striving for first- world status, yet we continue to think like primitive beings. As individuals we need to acknowledge that animals may be voiceless but they too have a right to life.
