To the editor:
I was dismayed and disgusted to read the article about pet safety and paper shredders printed on Feb. 3. While I understand the purpose of the article was to alert pet owners to the dangers of paper shredders (although one would hope pet owners would exercise good judgment when it comes to pets and any sort of electronic device), I found the narrative at the beginning of the article to be graphic and disturbing.
While this article was not generated by Journal-World staff, an article involving a description of dog mutilation was certainly not my idea of acceptable reading material with breakfast. I hope that in the future, some due consideration would be given to editing such material out of wire stories or at least placing a warning at the top.
