Warning to pet owners

We are writing to the residents of Princeton as a warning to other pet owners

Maple (left) was shot and killed on Thursday

Dear Editor,

We are writing to the residents of our Princeton community with heavy hearts as a warning to other pet owners and to ask for any information that residents may have.

During the evening of Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, a person or persons shot and killed one of our beloved miniature donkeys in the China Ridge area. She was in her pen on our property, her lifeless body discovered my my daughter on her way to school Friday morning.

Maple was a very much loved, comical and affectionate part of our family, as well as a companion to our other mini, Rosebud. It is heartbreaking to hear Rosebud’s mournful brays as she looks for her companion.

If anyone has any information as to the identity of the individual(s) responsible for this horrible act, we ask that you forward it to the Princeton RCMP.

To our friends, coworkers an community members who have shown our family kind words and support, we thank you.


Wade, Christie and Family
