Dead Puppy Hoax

Ordinarily, the St Neots Citizen doesn’t run actual news. But this has pissed me off.

Following national outcry over the kicking to death of a ten-week-old puppy in Priory Park, offers of help and support, an OAP buying the girl in question a new puppy, near-on mob justice in St Neots, and an innocent (for this crime at least) teen being villified on Facebook for supposedly killing the dog, it turns out that the canine died of a virus, and there was no evidence at all of head trauma.

Yes, the girl has ADHD and therefore probably can’t be trusted as the most reliable source of accurate information. But the fact that her parents allowed the story to go so far, hitting the national press and damaging the not-exactly-brilliant reputation of St Neots, is beyond belief.

St Neots isn’t a brilliant town, it hasn’t got that much going for it. It has its problems – although maybe not as many as a larger town or city, or extremely deprived areas in other parts of the country. But it isn’t all that bad either. Now it will carry for some time a reputation which it does not deserve, as the news of the hoax will surely not reach the centre stage as the initial “bleeding heart” story did. People see one thing about a town and take that to be the norm. Look at the football coach “riots” in the early 80′s – that was a one-off but St Neots still has a reputation for being unsafe for visiting football fans.

It really fucking angers me when people pull St Neots into disrepute. April Alderton and her family must hang their heads in shame.
