A protest has been announced for Saturday morning outside Cornwall Square against the pet shop’s practice of selling live animals it was announced on a local Facebook page.
CFN did an earlier story on the pet store after receiving numerous queries from the public.
Over 1300 people have voted in our online poll suggesting that Cornwall Ontario council enact a by law forcing retail establishments to only be able to sell animals that have been vet checked with 97% in support.
Several councilors have already voiced support for such a new by law.
But many at the protest wish for more drastic actions, that pets not be allowed to be sold in retail stores.
The City of Ottawa is also mulling over new regulations for animal sales. LINK
Katie Reddon, one of the protesters posted this:
It’s ironic that this issue has drawn more attention than the Chem Tank issue or Big Ben have garnered.
