    If the coward knew when the Mounties would be around they would hid their stupid pellet guns. Keep your eyes & ears open no matter where you live in the Codroy Valley. Always thought the Codroy Valley was civilized but I guess there are sickening jerks everywhere. What chance does an animal have with some jerk hiding behind a gun!

    The 'Codroy Valley?' The Codroy Valley is more than 200 square kilometres. That's like saying a cat was shot in St. John's. Narrow it down for us.
