From Deed Not Breed, Facebook (for clarification, please contact one of the admins who we understand include: Mel Page, Andrea Williams Phillips, Denise Day, Mel Rushmore, and possibly Sarah Gunther).
A disgusting, libellous letter was sent to their local pet shop. Fair enough, they decided to let people know that someone who hates them, or one of them in particular, has sent a cowardly (yes, definitely agree there) anonymous letter saying some nasty things (see below).
Perhaps they went public in order to flush out the perpetrator, or at least put the wind up them, as a kind of warning. Makes sense really, they’d be hard-pushed to figure out who’s responsible from the many people they’ve made enemies of over the years. Still, that doesn’t excuse base behaviour like that; it’s not like they deserve it. Surely, only people capable of being vindictive and malicious themselves would deserve that?
However, something doesn’t sit right. For starters the Police incident date is over two weeks old and, unless a similar (but not separate) incident occurred on that date, or reported date, to which this has been added, why wait so long to draw attention to it?
On top of that, Deed not Breed announced they held a successful free chipping service at that particular pet store on 6th March, a week after the incident date (although it’s implied the letter was received this past week). So they waited until another ‘successful event’, which apparently took place on Wednesday, 13 March, before going public?
Something else niggles away – DnB state quite clearly that their solicitor and the local Police are investigating the incident, who are obviously very flexible if they advised using Facebook to publicise the incident details and letter itself (link)…
It seems Ms Page also had permission from her solicitor and local Police to openly name two people she alleges could be responsible for the letter, although she’s disguised that accusation as a ‘campaign’.
We certainly hope this isn’t another staged ‘incident’, the like of which we’ve seen many times before.
