Missing dog Willow returns home wounded

Basildon Recorder: Missing pet may have been used in dog fighting Missing pet may have been used in dog fighting

A PET, missing from her home for three months’, may have been used as bait to train savage fighting dogs.

Beloved family pet Willow - a terrier cross - turned up after a homeowner found the terrified dog dumped in a garden in Church Road, Basildon.
She was covered in nasty wounds and cuts.

Willow went missing from the garden of her owners' home in Hinckfield Place, Basildon in June.

Willow may have just been abused by whoever took her or attacked randomly by another dog. Exactly what evidence is there that she was used for this purpose? Would that be dangerously close to 'investigative reporting'?

The Echo really do take the biscuit. The use of the word "may" is no defence against shoddy reporting.
This dog "may" have been through a lot of things. It "may" have been used as a bait dog (although I doubt it) but it "may" have been attacked by another stray dog or it "may" have been run over by a car or it "may" have been abused by another human or it "may"... and so it goes on.
Leave the sansationalism to the big boy press because your efforts as a local rag are laughable and, quite frankly, embarassing.

Absolutley correct. Dogs used for baiting and training die.

I dont think dear old gina marden understands the gravity of dog fighting, if you seriously think a dog can be used as "bait" for 3 months and just have a few "wounds & cuts" you need to take a long look at yourself in the mirror and ask "is reporting really for me? Would i not be better equipped to deal with the hectic task of stacking supermarket shelves? Or cooking dinner in preperation for the daily return home of somebody who does a real job?"

Where have any of us shown ourselves to be 'uncaring'? I love dogs as much as the next person but we're all talking about shoddy reporting. Since when was '1966' short for 'ric'?

My good god what the hell is wrong with you people? The way you attack the echo and the lady who writes this is disgusting. At least she has a job and isnt claiming benefits. My grammar & english isnt the best I must admit does that make me a bad person? I suppose I will get spoken to badly now and abused but I wouldnt expect anything less from you keyboard warriors who attack anyone who comments on here daily & the people who write the stories, shame on you all. Going back to the story I hope the dog gets over whatever happened to it the poor thing, and just for the record I work with animal rescue & many dogs do survive from being used as bait but I do agree this type of dog would not have been used as bait.

Some of the comments are a little unfair at times but I think one has to accept that they are often made tongue in cheek.
Nice to hear of your work with Animal Rescue anyway , Mrs. Marsden.

People may not have expressed themselves as you would like, however they make a good point. It is shoddy and sensationalised "writing", and while she may have a job, she is not, in my opinion, doing it very well.

I suppose im just shocked that people actually take so much time out their day to pick this womans work to pieces, I read the story and a few comments then carry on with my day. Ive only said my bit today as I cannot believe that some of the same people comment on here day after day, and its the same old rubbish. Yes her work isnt the best but for gods sake to sit here like they do daily and mock her and many others who comment is very very sad.

I am pretty appalled by the comments made here. If you have views about the journalist, who is a perfectly nice person doing her best, then I think they are best addressed to the editor. Comment is fine, but it doesn't have to be so nasty.

All this nastiness must be upsetting for Willow's family who are probably just trying to do their bit for dog welfare and warning that this sort of thing happens, as many of us do.

I would like to wish Willow a speedy recovery and send happy thoughts to Gina too!

I think you should read back to the first comment Missy posted, she did say her spelling wasn't the best and her initial complaint was regarding people moaning about the journalist's spelling, so her spelling comment was said tongue in cheek. I suppose you're another one who clearly is jumping on the hating band wagon and has a degree in spelling and English. Secondly not everyone takes the echo forum as seriously as some of you Guy's some people do have lives you know, maybe you should all try stepping away from you're keyboards and doing something positive rather than sitting behind the screen being nasty to a journalist who you have never met or know anything about.

Does it really matter how she has spelt it, when did the echo become an english lesson. I have to agree with missy you guys have far too much time on you're hands, stick to the story and stop being haters and bullies.
Er yes, when it was she who pulled up someone for their spelling in the first place!
I think you should read back to the first comment Missy posted, she did say her spelling wasn't the best and her initial complaint was regarding people moaning about the journalist's spelling, so her spelling comment was said tongue in cheek. I suppose you're another one who clearly is jumping on the hating band wagon and has a degree in spelling and English. Secondly not everyone takes the echo forum as seriously as some of you Guy's some people do have lives you know, maybe you should all try stepping away from you're keyboards and doing something positive rather than sitting behind the screen being nasty to a journalist who you have never met or know anything about.
Whoops, did someone forget to take their Valium today?
My comments about the journalist are not personal, they are about her ability as a journalist-and I think this article is of a pretty poor standard.
She "may" of course be a perfectly lovely woman;-)
As for taking this forum seriously, really?

You're totally missing the point, quite clearly the dog in this article has more brain cells than yourself. If you're so worried about a journalists grammar or other people's spelling you really need to take a look in the mirror, because you're life must be pretty lame if you let things as trivial as that bother you. And for the record I didn't say you got personal with the journalist but other's did. On that note I'm off and will not be wasting anymore time on here maybe you should do the same.

Priceless, you are offended because you think people are being unnecessarily rude, then your last two posts have been nothing but name calling.
It is you who is missing the point, not to mention a few other things I would not wonder.
This story has been over sensationalised and is badly written, given that it is by someone whose job is to report factually and with the correct use of both spelling and grammar, it is perfectly acceptable if people wish to comment if they do not feel that those standards have been met.
In your reply to me, you used the term "you guys" so I reasonably concluded you meant me.......
I would have a little read back over your posts before you comment further, you may be enlightened as to who is lacking in the brain cell department, irony seems to be passing you by too.....

Missy, it is actually spelt "you're", not your.
Does it really matter how she has spelt it, when did the echo become an english lesson. I have to agree with missy you guys have far too much time on you're hands, stick to the story and stop being haters and bullies.
Er yes, when it was she who pulled up someone for their spelling in the first place!
I think you should read back to the first comment Missy posted, she did say her spelling wasn't the best and her initial complaint was regarding people moaning about the journalist's spelling, so her spelling comment was said tongue in cheek. I suppose you're another one who clearly is jumping on the hating band wagon and has a degree in spelling and English. Secondly not everyone takes the echo forum as seriously as some of you Guy's some people do have lives you know, maybe you should all try stepping away from you're keyboards and doing something positive rather than sitting behind the screen being nasty to a journalist who you have never met or know anything about.
Whoops, did someone forget to take their Valium today?
My comments about the journalist are not personal, they are about her ability as a journalist-and I think this article is of a pretty poor standard.

Does it really matter how she has spelt it, when did the echo become an english lesson. I have to agree with missy you guys have far too much time on you're hands, stick to the story and stop being haters and bullies.
Er yes, when it was she who pulled up someone for their spelling in the first place!

This is a public forum where people are going to have a myriad of opinions, quite often ones that you will not like; as you, evidenced by your posts, get so cross then abusive, it may be a good idea to stick to your word and not waste anymore time on here.

Back to the story I hope this dog has now made a full recovery, it seems certain people forgot to mention anything about this poor dog and got side tracked.

All Grammar and spelling mistakes in this post aside; I thought it was the Job of a journalist to provide factual, concise commentary, to further enable the reader to form an opinion on the news item and debate the merits of said news item. To do this; one would need to have an elevated knowledge and sufficient command of the written English language to present that information at a level suitable for the target market.
Ergo; the logical outcome of such a train of thought is that the Echo obviously sees its target market, such that they need not worry about this quality as we are all….bloody Fick, mate aren’t I!
The dog looks, well dog tired to me.
