L I N K This should be an interesting case. For years now Humane Society’s in Ontario have been given increased control over animal control and done some very odd things. I know of a case here in Eastern Ontario that involved some issues that are in front of the courts that resulted in a shelter having a woman’s cats confiscated with many put down for the most illogical of reasons.
I think somewhere along the way quite a few shelters have become cash cows for vet practices instead of doing what they really should be doing and taking care of animals. I also know of a case recently where someone that couldn’t afford to treat their animal had it taken away from them; treated, and then “adopted” out of the shelter which was I’m sure very traumatic for the animal.
“[OSPCA] officer [Kevin] Strooband recalled one animal in particular. He came in and lifted a cat and its skin came off in his hands,” Mr. Avery told reporters outside the THS building.”
“Since The Globe’s stories were published, the THS has launched a number of lawsuits against former staff members and the OSPCA funded with money donated for animal care.
If these allegations are true the sentences should be a lot longer than two years indeed.
