Ottawa Woman Charged After Sealing Live Dog in Garbage JAN 11, 2017

Ottawa woman charged with animal cruelty for dumping dog in trash can

Ottawa, ONTARIO  (January 11, 2017) – A 31-year-old Ottawa woman is due to appear in Provincial Offenses Court in Ottawa tomorrow to answer to animal cruelty charges under the Ontario SPCA Act as a result of an investigation into a dog discovered in a garbage can.

On September 6, 2016 the Ontario SPCA received a call that a passerby had found a dog, alive, in a garbage can. The dog had been put inside a large plastic bag, which was sealed and had been placed in a garbage can along a public pathway in a residential area. The dog was able to make holes in the bag in order to breathe.

The owner of the dog was charged with causing an animal to be in distress, failing to provide adequate medical attention and failing to provide care necessary for its general welfare.

The Papillion-type dog has since been adopted into a new home.

“With resources available to help people who are unable to care for their pets or who no longer want them, situations like this should never happen,” says Steve Toy, Senior Inspector, Ontario SPCA. “There is no excuse for causing distress to an animal and there will be consequences under the law.”

What an evil EVIL woman…horrible. The SPCA inspector said it best: With all the resources available to help people who are unable to care for their pets or who no longer want them, situations like this should NEVER EVER happen…..

Yesterday I was very saddened to hear about that what happened to that little dog. There was a man in a neighborhood near where the PM lives and he abused his dog as well. I knew a girl (woman now) who used to live in that particular neighborhood and her father was an engineer who went to MIT and her brother is a doctor here in Ottawa. These people have money but no brains and no heart.

I love animals very much and I said it a number of times before if people cannot afford a pet you don’t go and get one at all. That is for responsible people only. People have to be well off fiancially because it costs a lot of money to keep up.

Genevieve there are many people who shouldn’t even have children and they throw them on the streets. The same holds true with pets many are not mentally capable of having pets at all nor children. Society today is gone to hell and I keep writing this many times in other columns.
