I AM writing in reference to the letter “Burn Donkey Abusers” by Eileen McNamara in the April 20-26 issue, about the donkey abuse in Limerick.

Mrs. McNamara thinks most COUNTRY people are ignorant and cold. Well, I was raised on a farm in Kerry and taught to respect all life, be it human or animal.

The people who abuse animals have a choice between good and evil. They choose evil.  They should be punished to the full extent of the law.
