(WHITE RIVER, ON) – No matter what people differ on opinions when it comes to law, politics or other substantial online debate, it seems matters of animal welfare is one of the few subjects where the majority of people unite under.
A dog rescue has informed the public of two dogs that have been living an apparent hell on earth. We have been told this situation unfolded in the small community of White River, Ontario.
“This is the story of two dogs. Left in a pen outside all year round – and chained – for 6 years of their lives. No shade in the summer – as u can see they dig holes to keep cool in – no cover from the harsh winter except a dog house.” stated One Paw At A Time.
They further stated that “The owner has openly admitted they cannot properly care for them – that their living conditions are not good – and that the dogs have been outside for years – because they have a large family so they keep them outside. They literally just feed and water them and they just sit there. THIS IS NOT OKAY! THIS IS NOT PROPER ANIMAL CARE.”
“Someone went to help the female which winded up pinned under a board – who knows for how long. Someone helped the dog and seen the conditions it was living in. The dog had a stinky wound around it’s neck from it choke collar and needed a bath badly. Once the police caught wind of this they went and intimidated and basically threatened her to give the dog back – all the while not taking the condition of the dog into consideration.” Stated the dog rescue.
“The dog was returned and put right back on its chain in is cell – then brought out to the reserve and stuck into a much smaller cage – so the owner could dodge the investigation from the SPCA that everyone has been calling in for. ” The dog rescue explained.
“Then were moved again when found again. THIS IS WHEN THEY NEED YOU TO BE THEIR VOICE! We will NOT be intimated by an officer who cannot do his job! Please share! A complaint is being made in regards to the officer and the detachment itself. Numerous SPCA’s have been contacted. Humane societies throughout northern Ontario have also been contacted. Enough is enough.” Was the closing statement the dog rescue made.
Below is a statement Kylie-Marie Berthiaume made regarding the situation.
”These dogs where located in white river Ontario!
A by stander found the first dog tied with a choker stuck to a fence! She then notice the other dog and the conditions were horrendous so she unclipped the pup who was stuck and brought her home. She had noticed the dogs choker had embedded into her neck. The police were call but they made her give the dog back despite the conditions and neglect the dog has faced for 7 YEARS! Yes those dogs lived like this for 7 years!
When the dog was given back they put her right back in the same situation but tied her into the pen.
These dogs don’t leave those areas. They aren’t given dog food or water, they don’t go for walks and has never had a bath! They eat raw meat scraps no one wants.
When the original post blew up and the spca started an investigation the owners got scared and moved them to pick mobert reservation and put them in small metal crates cause the spca cant do anything about it.
The police were also called on the by stander about the post for neglect and the police told her she has to remove the post or she’ll be charged with harassment. The video is attached below
So here I am!!! I’ll share this and stand up to.. they can’t charge everyone! Share the crap out of this and let’s get justice for these poor pups!”
The video below is described by the dog rescue as an officer appearing to pass off that this treatment is ok.
