CCTV deterrent to dog thieves

In response to Rita Patton’s letter Time for store to act, (Spenborough Guardian, May 11) how silly to say a dog owner can only take their pet to the store in a car.

The Cleckheaton store forks off the Greenway, a regular walk for dog owners and a great way to do two jobs at once by walking the dog and picking up a few items of shopping, not to mention the environmental implications of less traffic.

Surely better CCTV aimed at the dog park would be more of a deterrent to dog thieves.

After Jess was taken and killed I wrote to the Guardian after a very upsetting incident with Tesco management and their attitude to dog owners so I, for one, won’t be holding my breath.
