The first step toward protecting students and animals alike in your community is lobbying for their legal right to safety. Contact your local elected officials and demand that humane education be required in all schools. Here’s how.
Reported Animal Abuse Cases
Globalnews.ca reported that a group of around 10 juveniles allegedly abused and killed four puppies and that one of the dead puppies was found hanging from a stop sign. Investigators stated that all the puppies had been significantly injured before they died. Reportedly, only one individual was arrested and charged with killing animals and cruelty to animals causing unnecessary suffering, as the majority of those involved were under 12 years old and couldn’t be charged.
CTVNews.ca reported that two juveniles between the ages of 10 and 12 may have been responsible for stealing a family’s dog from a porch and tossing him into a fire pit. The dog, named Polo, was reportedly severely burned. He was being treated for his injuries and was expected to recover.
