SIR - I enjoy walking around Wibsey park and feeding the birds at the lake. Recently a lot of chicks have hatched, the latest being on Monday, May 23 a group of six greylag geese chicks,

I was horrified to find out from a friend that a group of youths thought it funny to throw stones and other objects at these chicks, resulting in three being killed.

To be honest I don't understand what sort of enjoyment they got from hurting defenceless animals. These idiots, for want of a better word, should be severely punished but nothing will happen to them.

When I was a boy years ago we were taught to respect our elders and all animals. Nowadays a lot of the younger generation have no respect for anything and this is down to the parents.
