Pets dumped in recycling bins in Torrisholme

Monday 24th, July 2017 / 10:32 Written by

This is one of the sickest things I read recently in The Visitor.

Rabbits, kittens and a guinea pig being dumped in bottle banks in Morecambe. Don Holroyd, rescued the pets, at the Torrisholme bottle and can banks after some people heard the animals whining. Aparently the animals had been so desperate that they had started to eat their own fur and skin.

Animal and child abuse are 2 things that make my blood boil. Don Holroyd (aka The Hedgehog Man) did a great thing by rescuing them but there’s one thing that I disagree with him about. Don is quoted in The Visitor as beieving that these crimes were committed by pet owners because they don’t have enough money to feed the animals due to the poor economy – these crimes weren’t committed by cash strapped pet owners, they were committed by sick, twisted, a-holes who one day will receive karma and be forced to eat their own poo.

  • While I agree that this is disgusting behaviour, I’m not sure you should have such an opinionated piece on a website that seems to be geared towards Morecambe town.

    Personal opinions are fine for personal websites, but people who come across morecambe.co.uk are likely to be looking for information on the town and local area – and not for information like this.

    With all the time and effort you go to to promote Morecambe, I’m sure you wouldn’t want to undo any of that work by putting people off with so much negativity.

    My advice: keep this site for promoting Morecambe (or sell the domain to the town council so that they can do that) and register another domain (like matt.co.uk or whatever) for your personal rants.

  • Alternatively if you do want to cover stuff like this because you want to cover local news, cover it impartially and include only facts like the news broadcasters do and let people make up their own mind.

    I’m sure your readers would be able to decide for themselves what they’d like to happen to the people who did this and don’t need you to spell it out for them in a personal rant.

    Being impartial and factual will make you more credible as a source of local news, if that’s what you want.

  • Gareth, I’m a regular on this website and so will answer your dribble.

    Who do you think you are to tell other people what to put on their website. If you don’t like it, do one…

    “I’m not sure you should have such an opinionated piece on a website that seems to be geared towards Morecambe town”

    –WTF, Heaven forbid someone has an opinion

    “Personal opinions are fine for personal websites,”

    –Maybe this is a personal website

    “With all the time and effort you go to to promote Morecambe,”

    –It’s dangerous to make assumptions because your end up making an ASS out of U and ME. What on earth gave you the idea that a lot of effort is going into promoting Morecambe?

    “My advice:…”

    — No one gives a crap about your advice you hypocritical schmuck. Take your own advice and go and rant somewhere else maybe gareth.co.uk

    “…Being impartial and factual will make you more credible as a source of local news, if that’s what you want”

    — Yawn. This site is not trying to be a credible news source. Why on Earth would you think that. Go away.

  • Wow, who let you off your leash? I’m not sure that such an aggressive response was warranted to be honest – I was only pointing out that a town website needs to focus on positives if it is to be successful in attracting visitors.

    If you are any indication of the inhabitants of Morecambe though, perhaps it’s best that people do stay away.

    This is clearly intended as a town website and not a personal one – the use of the town’s name, local news, local events and activities and local photographs all serve as reliable indicators.

    If you were to ask any of the town councillors or anyone involved with tourism in the Morecambe area for their opinion on such negativity on a website that is supposedly there for promotion, I don’t think they’d have a favourable opinion to be honest. This is probably why every other town, local or national website that I’ve ever seen keeps things impartial and keeps the personal opinions for the comments.

    Never mind, I’m sure you know what you’re doing so I’ll leave you to it.

  • Please delete ALL of my posts from this forum. I don’t want anything to do with this website any more – or its bulldog users.

    Thanks.
