14

On the 13th of December 2016 at 4:30 P.M officers with the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service and Ontario Provincial Police assisted The Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society at an address in Bruce Mines with regards to an investigation under the Dog Owners Liability Act.

It is alleged that on October 6th 2016 three dogs owned by the accused attacked/bit a dog owned by the victim. Officials with the Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society continued attempts to identify and locate the owner of the dogs and on December 13th 2016 the owner and her dogs were located. The owner was very cooperative and gave possession of her 3 white canines to the Humane Society without incident.

The owner was issued a summons under section 4 (1) (a) of the Dog Owners Liability Act for being the owner of a dog that has bitten or attacked a person or domestic animal.

The owner was given a first appearance date in Provincial Offences Court for the 14th of December 2016.

  1. It was 3 white pit bulls, read the back articles. 1 attacked and killed a golden retriever on the street and killed it. The other 2 tried to attack another dog which was able to escape somehow…Not sure how. The law states all Pits must be muzzled, leashed and fixed, these were clearly illegal pit bull terriers who were not controlled or even attempted to be controlled. Kill them before they kill again. Definitely shouldn’t go back to the irresponsible owner who clearly has no respect for other animals or even her own or she wouldn’t have pit bulls not on a leash. Don’t believe pit bulls are dangerous? Go on youtube and watch pit bull attacks…It’ll keep you busy all day.

  2. Still no name? How is it acceptable to hide from authorities for over 2 months? Brutal! Release all names or none, how about a little fairness

  3. Well this has me asking more questions than learning anything! Maybe my head is too thick, but what happened? did a person die or a dog? they said victim, yet what happened? Clearly a poorly written piece in my opinion.

  4. How is it the name isn’t released? We need to know who is charged for having weed but not who is housing killer dogs and hiding from authorities for over two months?

  5. No one who actually cares about dog welfare wants more dogs to be born with the drive and size to
    kill all other size dogs.

    What traits could be worse?

    Winter is here and countless pits will be shivering and dying in unheated buildings and on chains, thanks to the bully peoples’ mongering.

  6. It’s NOT the dogs fault but that of the irresponsible and uneducated OWNER!!! And NO pit bulls are not illegal in Algoma… However ignorant uneducated people like you should be!!!!
