Aussie man fumes over nasty note left on wife's car

The note was found after a particularly cold night in South Australia.

An infuriated man has blasted a stranger who left a nasty note on his wife’s car, accusing them of treating their animals poorly.

The couple, from Murray Bridge in South Australia, found the note after temperatures dropped lower than average on Monday morning.

“Your [sic] a lousy human,” the handwritten note began. “4°C — (under) 2°C and dogs outside. F**k me, what a c**t.”

Funnily enough, the insult-ridden note was penned on a business’s letterhead which reads ‘with compliments’ along the top.

As the owner of the dogs had no way to respond to the anonymous note writer, he instead took to his local Facebook page to issue a furious response.

“To the d**khead who left this note on my wife’s car this morning, you know nothing about my dogs, they have kennels inside a shed as well as outside, not that it has anything to do with you,” he wrote.

“Also, we know who you are because the people across the road has CCTV. If you are so concerned about my dogs go up and pat them, d**khead.

“You must have been busy this morning writing notes to everybody that has dogs outside. What the f**k was you snooping around that time of the morning anyway?”

Most Facebook users agreed the note writer was in the wrong, saying their dogs prefer to sleep outside.

"Crazy how dogs and other animals survive in the wild," one wrote.

"WTF. My 2 dogs sleep outside and keep warm together in their large crate, and extra dog bed... so what.. how rude to do that to you," another said.

Someone else questioned who goes on a walk with paper and a pen.

Are kennels enough to keep dogs warm?

Sadly, the RSPCA sees a spike in cases of neglect during winter and offered some advice: "If it’s too cold for you, there’s a good chance it’s too cold for your pets too."

They said short-coated, elderly, young, underweight and unwell animals are especially vulnerable during low temperatures, and animals who sleep outside should always have proper shelter from the elements.

Outdoor pets may require more food in winter, as it takes more energy to regulate their body temperature in the cold, and it's recommended that if the weather is likely to drop below zero degrees, metal water bowls should be replaced with plastic ones to stop your pet's tongue from sticking to the bowl.

If you notice an animal in distress, call your local RSPCA hotline.
