Barrie Man Charged For Killing Girlfriend’s Six-month-old Puppy

“This sick, sadistic, jealous, pathetic excuse for a man, should be put in a cell & left to rot!!”

BARRIE, Ont. — A man accused of deliberately killing his girlfriend’s puppy by slamming it on the floor because he was jealous has been released on bail.

Ryan Anthony Baklarz, 23, who is charged with killing an animal, was released on $2,500 and allowed to go home with his mother on Friday.

In court, the prosecution alleged Baklarz killed the fluffy six-month-old Pomeranian puppy named Angel in a jealous rage because his girlfriend was out with a friend with whom she was once in a relationship.

The accused picked up the dog and slammed it on the hard tile floor, causing the dog’s death,” Crown attorney Jennifer Armenise said. “He then put the dog in a plastic bag, tied it and left it on the floor in front of the refrigerator.”

There was no publication ban placed on the bail hearing.

Sitting in her downtown Barrie apartment, with her Irish terrier at her side, girlfriend Ashley Berdan was still weepy Friday as she showed off pictures of Angel, a buff-coloured ball of fluff with big brown eyes. One photo shows the pup wrestling with a red ball, another with its head stuck in a jar of peanut butter.

“She had a thing for peanut butter,” Berdan said fondly.

Confined to a wheelchair for life, she said her dogs bring her great joy.

“My dogs are my life,” Berdan said.

Court heard that Berdan got a text from Baklarz stating: “I killed the dog.”

But, sitting in her apartment, Berdan said she didn’t believe him until she returned home Sunday around 7 p.m. and found a bag on the floor with something soft in it.

“I cried all night and when I woke up I cried again,” Berdan said.

She didn’t want to call police on her own boyfriend but a friend who was with her went outside and flagged an officer on the street, Berdan said.

She doesn’t understand why this happened. “He is normally a sweetheart,” Berdan said of Baklarz.

Baklarz, who has no criminal record, will be back in court Sept. 23.

Child Porn Charges Dismissed, Bestiality Charge Added In N.S. Case

Comments Off on Child Porn Charges Dismissed, Bestiality Charge Added In N.S. Case

” Regards only this subject:The news that Germany is set to tighten its laws against bestiality in a bid to improve animal welfare; has been very welcomed indeed. Now we need other states to follow suit, so perverted hands will never touch an animal again; so please, keep signing the petitions & spreading the news. 

 I take no pleasure whatsoever in posting these sickening news items…however, I feel people have a right to know! Also, I/we can get over the initial shock, but the victims i.e. children & animals have to live with their memories, forever!! Also why shouldn’t these people be named & shamed? I would want to know if living next to a person who likes to copulate with animals.”

“This case exemplifies how the 2 offences often go hand in hand! It brings to light the issue I have already touched on, that many paedophiles  often started off  & keep an interest in bestiality etc. but also then prey on children. We don’t have a clue how many paedophiles also rape animals & vice versa!

According to the FBI, those who harm animals are four times more likely to commit violence against other people.  This violence includes rape, serial murder, and other very serious offences   An Animal Abuser Registry prevents these perpetrators from hiding their potentially deadly behaviour, ensuring a safer, less violent county for all.  so we must try to get the Animal Abuse Register implemented in all Country’s alongside the Paedophile registry!!.”

 Child pornography charges against a Nova Scotia photographer has been dismissed because police took too long to examine his computer.

However, New Glasgow resident Earle MacDonald is now accused of a different sex crime.

Police seized MacDonald’s photography equipment and computers in Feb. 2011.

He was charged with possessing, accessing and distributing child pornography four months later.

The computers were sent to a police lab for a full analysis, but it took 15 months before the forensic report was ready.

The courts say that is simply too long and today Nova Scotia’s Internet Prosecution team dismissed the charges due to unreasonable delay.

“But really this was a matter of, not if this could happen, but when this was going to happen,” says Crown attorney Craig Botterill.

“This is just the symptom of the growing pains in this particular field of law enforcement. The proliferation of Internet crimes against children is something we’re all struggling with keeping up with.”

Botterill says police resources have increased since the charges were laid and this kind of decision should not happen again.

MacDonald offered little comment as he left the Pictou courtroom Thursday, but his lawyer says the judge’s message to the police lab is clear.

“When computers are sent to them for analysis, they must deal with it,” says Rob Sutherland.

MacDonald was issued a stay of proceedings on the child pornography charges just before the hearing Thursday morning.

However, he was also charged with an additional offence – one count of bestiality.

“The language of the charge itself alleges that this was sex between the accused and a dog,” says Botterill.

MacDonald is due back in court Dec. 17 to answer to the bestiality charge.

Woman guilty of animal cruelty fined and barred from owning more than one pet Read it on Global News: Global Edmonton | Woman guilty of animal cruelty fined and barred from owning more than one pet

The woman at the centre of one of the city’s most horrific cases of animal cruelty has been sentenced to a fine and strict restrictions.

Shelly Zenner pleaded guilty to causing an animal distress after more than a thousand rabbits were seized from her south side home.

The rabbits destroyed the home by chewing through wiring in the home and urinating everywhere.

Half of the rabbits were unable to be saved because they were too ill.

Both the crown and defence had requested the sentence that the judge handed down Monday.

In addition to the $8,500 fine, the court also employed a rarely used section of the animal protection act. It essentially allows the court to put Zenner on probation for the rest of her life.

She is not allowed to have any rabbits and she can only have one pet, either a dog or a cat that has been spayed or neutered. She is not allowed to go to a pet store unless she is buying food for that animal.

The crown says, given the nature of the case, the sentence is a good balance between the facts of the case with the mental health issues that are clearly there.

“The crown accepts the fact that animals are great companions and add a lot to people’s lives. At the same time, these animals are indefensible,” says Crown Attorney Christian Lim, “So this sentence sets a large deterrence factor. It is tempered with mercy and grace, in other words, it looked at the situation of the accused, her financial situation and mainly her health situation.”

Zenner’s mother and brother were also charged in this case, but those charges have been dropped.
