Cornwall Ontario – A facebook post led to confirmation of a tragic death of a feline on 2nd Street East early this morning.
CCPS Cst Dan Cloutier had the following to say about cat incidents.
CCPS refers animal complaints as they come in to OSPCA. We certainly do not condone any type of abuse involving animals and these matters are referred to the OSPCA for investigation as they are the experts in that domain.
The local OSPCA does not have a contract with the City of Cornwall for animal control services. A call to the local affiliate didn’t confirm the story, but a call to the Toronto area head office confirmed the death.
Stephanie Johns of the OSPCA did confirm that our viewers needed to call 310-SPCA (7722) to get a case officially investigated, but it appears that there’s some linkage issues between the local OSPCA, CCPS, and OSPCA head offices when it comes to animal protection.
As for Ms Laroque? Her original comments and the entire thread were removed without comment. We may never know who threw water on a cat which allegedly resulted in the animals death.
Of course the bigger issue is that it simply might be time for people stop letting their animals run loose. Cats adapt to indoors really well. And if you wish, like a dog you can take your cat out on a leash. They do learn really quickly.
