An Ontario family and community are in shock after receiving an anonymous hate letter written about a young autistic boy, CityNews in Toronto reports.

Karla Begley said her son Max, 13, stays with his grandmother in the morning during the summer time. It was at that Newcastle, Ontario home they received the letter.

“I was shaking when I was reading it,” Brenda Millson, Max’s grandmother, told CityNews. “It’s awful words. You don’t know why somebody would ever do such a thing.”

The letter calls the young boy a “nuisance” and a “wild animal” before suggesting the family “euthanize” the child.

Begley says the police have been contacted and charges may be filed.
