Maximum penalty, including lifetime ban on owning animals, for Karin and Catherine Adams
0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!
Karin and Catherine Adams have been charged with failing to comply with conditions of an undertaking, cruelty to animals, wilful neglect of animals and possession of stolen property in a case in Alberta in which 11 horses, 25 dogs and 17 birds were found to be in distress on a rural property near Cereal, Alberta. This case follows on the heels of animal cruelty charges the pair face in British Columbia. In February 2015, the mother and daughter were also charged with animal cruelty under both the Criminal Code of Canada and the BC Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. They have yet to go to trial on those charges. In that case, it is alleged that 18 horses, 18 dogs, 15 birds, two cats and 104 fish were found in varying levels of distress on a rural property in Houston, BC.
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that Crown Prosecutors in British Columbia and Alberta proceed with any federal animal cruelty charges as indictable offences and recommend the maximum penalty, including a lifetime ban on owning, having the custody or control of or residing in the same premises as an animal or a bird. We also respectfully request that, if one or both of the Adams' are found guilty, the Honourable Judges in either or both provinces impose the maximum penalty available under the law.
