“WTF…looks like another garden ornament, left to fend for itself; certainly not given food or cared for in any way at all. I hope Molly’s owners feel the full force of the law, they deserve to be starved & have tightened collars embedded in their necks…see how long they would last! I just wish there was a name & image of the owner, because everybody needs to know how cruel this pathetic turd is!”

“Kudos to all who helped & are still helping Molly to overcome her injuries; hopefully it won’t be long before Molly has a new family who lavish her with love & affection!”

Molly, a Shepherd cross found near death, is happy and recovering in a foster home after being rescued from a horrifying cruelty situation near Port Hardy.

Dog Literally Skin & Bone…Appalling!!

Although she was found extremely emaciated, outside, in a deplorable state of neglect, Molly is making a good recovery in the loving care of a foster home.

A gentle soul, Molly is still thin but eating well and gaining weight in her warm, new home, where her personality shines brighter each day.

The BC SPCA cruelty investigations team has forwarded recommended charges to Crown Counsel.

Horrifically emaciated dog, found near death, now safe in SPCA care.

An 18-month-old Shepherd-cross dog named Molly is alive against all odds after being rescued in one of the most horrific cruelty cases ever witnessed by the BC SPCA.

The RCMP in Port Hardy was called out on Nov. 25 in response to a complaint of animal cruelty. They discovered the extremely emaciated dog outside on her owner’s porch. “She was in critical condition, non-responsive and shivering, with a collar deeply embedded in her neck,” says Marcie Moriarty, the BC SPCA’s chief prevention and enforcement officer. “The constable immediately rushed Molly to a nearby veterinary hospital, where staff provided emergency treatment to keep her alive and removed the embedded collar from her neck.”

Embedded Collar

Once stabilized, she was transported to Nanaimo where the case was turned over to the BC SPCA for ongoing investigation. After receiving additional life-saving medical treatment, Molly has been placed in the care of an SPCA foster home as she recovers.

“She has gained some weight and is now able to walk, but she is still extremely emaciated,” says Moriarty. “She is getting care around the clock and we are very hopeful that, despite the incredible odds against her, she will make a full recovery.”

Moriarty says it is impossible to comprehend how anyone could allow a dog to slowly, and excruciatingly, starve to death. “We rescue thousands of animals from heartbreaking situations every year at the SPCA, but cases like this are particularly shocking,” she says.

“The fact that Molly has survived is a true miracle and we are so grateful to the RCMP, the veterinary staff in Port Hardy and Nanaimo and all those who have played a role in her rescue and recovery.”

Recovering Well

Molly has a long recovery process ahead and is expected to stay in foster care for several weeks before being placed in a new home.

The BC SPCA is continuing its investigation and will be recommending charges of animal cruelty against Molly’s former owners.

Canadian Forces Member Faces 2nd Bestiality Charge

Comments Off on Canadian Forces Member Faces 2nd Bestiality Charge

“Sorry the first post should have been done before now; glad I waited!. Why was this pervert allowed to walk the streets in the first place? because he was a man of the forces, I bet it would have been different had it been a normal citizen! But it shouldn’t matter where or who they are, they shouldn’t be walking the streets, especially when their name is being withheld…the public need protection, they need to know if they are living next to a noxious, deprived, nefarious pig!”

“This just goes to show that they are not all hairy neanderthals living in the forest, they are everywhere & the public have a bloody right to know about them, under the Freedom of Information Act…just as they would if it were a pedophile!  

Update 24th October

A Canadian Forces member in Manitoba has been charged with bestiality a second time, after a woman alleged that she was asked to engage in sexual acts with a dog.

Police in Brandon, Man., say the 31-year-old man from Canadian Forces Base Shilo will appear in court on Oct. 29 on charges of bestiality, soliciting illicit sexual intercourse and circulating obscene matter.

Earlier this month, the man was charged with bestiality and procuring and circulating obscene matter, after a woman filed a complaint with police in late September.

At the time of the first arrest, RCMP said the man had used a dating website to ask the woman to participate in acts of bestiality. No specific details were given at that time about the man’s request.

Shortly after the man’s arrest was made public, a second woman went to police and said she was also contacted on a dating website by a man who asked her to take part in “acts which included bestiality with a dog,” Brandon police said in a release Wednesday.

The man, who was released on strict conditions following the first arrest, was arrested again on Tuesday, according to police.

Neither RCMP nor Brandon police has released the man’s name, but both police agencies say he is a member of the Canadian Forces Shilo.

1 st October:-  Canadian Forces member charged with bestiality

A Canadian Forces member from western Manitoba has been charged with bestiality and circulating obscene matter, according to RCMP.

RCMP in Brandon, Man., received a complaint last month that a 31-year-old man, who is a current member of Canadian Forces Base Shilo, had used a dating website to ask a woman to “participate in acts of bestiality,” police said in a release Monday.

Military police searched the man’s home near Brandon and seized a number of computers on Sept. 28, according to RCMP.

The man was charged with bestiality and procuring and circulating obscene matter.

He has since been released on strict conditions. He will appear in court at a later date. “WTF…released?? so he can just wander around & pick another sentient being for his sick fantasies…people have a right to know who this person is !!”

RCMP did not name the man saying they wanted to protect members of his family, as well as the victim. “I can understand protecting the victims name but not the pervert…I feel sorry for his family but the public have a right to know a person as revolting as he; is wandering the neighbourhood. 

Police did not specify who the victim would be in this case, nor did they release any further details about the case.

Cougar that attacked B.C. woman in her home is found & Killed

Comments Off on Cougar that attacked B.C. woman in her home is found & Killed

 

A starving cougar that walked into the home of a woman and attacked her while she sat in her living room is now dead.

“Sorry, I changed the title because I thought it read like the women had died! One has to wonder about the human animal conflict, is it getting out of hand…are humans building too close to where these predators live? Or are they blaming it on the coyotes as a red herring…Although I love nature, I certainly wouldn’t want to live that close. I think we don’t give wild animals the respect they deserve, after all some do live in what could be called…their local restaurant!”

TRAIL — A starving cougar that walked into the home of a woman and attacked her while she sat in her living room is now dead.

The woman was in her house with a number of puppies when the cougar walked in through an open door and attacked her on the sofa,” Trail RCMP Sgt. Rob Hawton said of the weekend incident.

With the help of her dog, the woman fought the cougar off and chased it out of the house. She received a couple of minor injuries to her upper leg from the cougar’s claws.

The cougar was gone by the time police arrived. But the animal was tracked down and destroyed Monday.

Hawton said the cougar was gone before officers arrived and a subsequent search was not successful. B.C. Conservation officers were called in and the cougar was tracked down and destroyed Monday.

“This is an extremely rare occurrence and was driven by the animal’s desperation for food,” Hawton said.

The cougar is believed to have been too weak from starvation to hunt normally.

Earlier this month, the president of the Trail Wildlife Association, Terry Hanik, raised the alarm of a rise in predators in the region.

Hanik said cougars and wolves were pushing into the area, adding their numbers to the huge number of coyotes already plaguing the back country and eroding the deer population, forcing predators to look into more settled areas where deer have been thriving for years.

“Though this won’t help the lady that was attacked, hopefully it can give some help as to what to do if one see’s one.”

Animal Cruelty In Musquash

Comments Off on Animal Cruelty In Musquash

 

St. George RCMP are looking into a case of animal cruelty in Musquash.

The Mounties got a call Saturday that a pitbull cross was left trapped in a steel cage at a gravel pit without food, water or shelter.

Police believe the dog would not have survived long due to the 30 degree heat because the cage was wired shut.
RCMP believe the dog was dumped in the pit sometime on Friday night.

The Provincial SPCA provided assistance and the dog is now in the care of the Saint John Animal Rescue League.

 

If you can provide the RCMP with any information on this, contact the St. George RCMP 506 755-1130 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

Wandering bear killed in Moncton

Comments Off on Wandering bear killed in Moncton

“Why isn’t something done to protect the public & the bears from getting shot?? Surely if a town is surrounded by bear Country, can’t some sort of fencing be put up? The bears are obviously coming down for food, or are just nosy…but we can’t just continue to shoot them…that’s just the lazy option!”

Police in New Brunswick killed a black bear in downtown Moncton as it wandered through the city.

Police and officers with the province’s Natural Resources Department were called to respond when the animal was seen near the Old Garrison on John Street. Police shot the animal.

Natural Resources Department officers no longer trap or tranquilize bears when they enter urban areas.

The RCMP say encounters with wildlife are common on the out-skirts of the city, but in this instance the bear wandered into a neighbourhood near the downtown core

Cat mutilations the work of a predator: BC SPCA

Comments Off on Cat mutilations the work of a predator: BC SPCA

The culprit responsible for a spate of mutilated cats in suburban Vancouver is more natural than evil, says an internationally-known forensic veterinarian who has looked into the case.

A missing cat poster hangs on a light post in Maple Ridge, where several felines have been found mutilated. May 29, 2012

After months of speculation, the B.C. Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals announced Friday they believe the killer of the cats is another animal, likely a coyote.

It was feared the grisly remains were the work of a disturbed human.

Melinda Merck, who has worked on a similar case of cat mutilations in Florida and also helped out in the investigation of the massacre of sled dogs in Whistler, conducted necropsies on 40 animals — 20 cats, eight birds, one rabbit and a dog leg.

“A lot of the findings that we see with predation are different than what we might see with human involvement as far as mutilation,” said Merck.

“The findings depend on the type of predator, it can be a domestic dog or it can be a more of a wildlife predator.”

Some of the cats were found in two pieces, as if sawed in half, but Merck said it would not be difficult for a coyote to perform the damage.

The SPCA has closed the book on the case, but the RCMP still thinks human involvement may explain why some of the cats ended up in strange places, such as under a missing cat poster.

“From a policing perspective our files aren’t closed at this point,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen. “There’s a few outstanding incidents where there could quite possibly could have been and quite likely was some post death-human involvement in regards to how and where the remains were found.”

Thiessen said the individual that may be responsible for such and incident would “clearly have some personal issues.”

Despite finding no evidence of human involvement in the killing of the cats, the SPCA said it does not regret telling the public a person could be responsible.

Marcie Moriarty, general manager of cruelty investigations, said the society took a cautious approach in case the perpetrator was someone who planned on eventually killing humans.

She said initial pathology reports on the dead cats found the wounds were consistent with machete or a hatchet, leading the SPCA to announce the possibility of human involvement.

Juvenile humpback whale likely suffered for months before dying on White Rock beach (with video)

Comments Off on Juvenile humpback whale likely suffered for months before dying on White Rock beach (with video)

METRO VANCOUVER

Fisheries officers and police stand by a dead beached humpback whale as a man paddles by on White Rock Beach in White Rock, BC., June 12, 2012. The whale, which was discovered at about 4 a.m. had become entangled in a fishing net and died on the beach.

The steady return of humpback whales to local waters took a graphic twist Tuesday morning when a juvenile wrapped in line washed ashore and died just east of the White Rock pier.

Hundreds of onlookers swarmed the scene, experiencing a mixture of sadness and awe at the presence of such a large marine mammal at their feet.

Some brought flowers for the whale. Members of the Semiahmoo First Nation danced and drummed in its honour. Both RCMP and federal fisheries officers stood in soaking boots and pants to maintain crowd control in the sea water.

In classic west coast fashion, one man on a standup paddleboard cruised by for a closer look before authorities shooed him away.

While grey whales are known to wash ashore in Metro Vancouver from time to time, this is the first such event in recent memory involving a humpback whale and is further evidence of the species’ gradual return to local waters.

“We know they used to inhabit the Strait of Georgia 100 years ago,” said Lance Barrett-Lennard, a marine mammal specialist with the Vancouver Aquarium.

“We see it as a good sign they are using these waters again, but they’re still not an everyday sight.”

RCMP Sgt. Paul Vadik said police were first notified of the beached whale at 5:15 a.m. It was still breathing but died about an hour later.

The whale measured 8.5 metres from the head to the base of its fluke, or tail fin, and is thought to be about three years old.

The creature had become entangled with heavy nylon line in its mouth, baleen and fluke, and could have suffered for months before dying.
