The animal cruelty act reads as follows:

Causing damage or injury

446. (1) Every one commits an offence who

(a) by wilful neglect causes damage or injury to animals or birds while they are being driven or conveyed; or

(b) being the owner or the person having the custody or control of a domestic animal or a bird or an animal or a bird wild by nature that is in captivity, abandons it in distress or wilfully neglects or fails to provide suitable and adequate food, water, shelter and care for it.

Punishment

(2) Every one who commits an offence under subsection (1) is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term of not more than two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction and liable to a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months or to both.

 

The dog walker neglected these six dog while in her care.  We need to demand she is charged with six counts to be served consecutively.  This is a tragic event that has effected the dogs families,  friends, strangers and communities.  She should also have a lifetime ban on owning animals.
