Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I happen to live in the neighbourhood of Bukit Tunku, and I am writing this letter to complain about a situation which, I think, has become a major concern lately for the residents of our community. Please allow me to explain the situation in brief.

It is the dogs – stray dogs that are – of which our community members are scared. And they have every reason to be scared because these dogs keep running wildly inside our neighbourhood. Some of these dogs even tried to attack some members of our community, lately. Now, I can not really claim that these dogs are completely unattended since some young children, aged between 10 to 15 years, can be seen accompanying these dogs.

Some of our community members have already advised these “unruly” adolescents not to allow these dogs to roam free in the neighbourhood, but they just can not seem to understand the danger of their foul behaviour.

In view of this problem, I would really appreciate it if you would take some concrete steps to help our community members get rid of this menacing situation, caused by these children and their dogs before anything bad happens to us.

Yours faithfully,

Amir Ishmail
