The story about 29 animals being seized from a habitual animal abuser is a failure of our system for protecting animals. We failed those dead horses, goats, cattle and the 29 remaining abused animals. This is the fourth such charge against the abuser. He has violated court orders not to possess animals four times.
The SPCA is left to pick up the pieces. They are fundraising, trying to care for the animals, and recommended the latest charges. BC has a terrible track record regarding animal abuse.
I hope the accused faces a jail sentence if convicted and is forced to compensate the SPCA for their efforts.
