Waikato Times letter of the week #74

From the edition of Saturday 5 November. As always, spelling, punctuation, grammar and logic are exactly as printed in the Waikato Times.
Food for thought
Well! It looks like the “gold old days” for tenancy-managers and their “black”  ways of removing unwanted tenants, are being revisited these days.
One well known local firm has reverted to the use of centuries-old methods, consisting of the blackening of tenants’ personal character, using food supposedly given in friendship, but surprisingly, found to be containing fatal does of high toxic material, and now their latest “song and dance” item of illegally entering the rented premises with examples of dead or dying small animals (cats usually) and salting these hapless corpses into boxes of rubbish placed at strategic positions throughout the house!
(Larger animals – elephants – would be somewhat counter-productive for the manager’s ends, although the subtleness may give them away). Food for thought, eh?
