Public Tips Lead to Charge in Animal Cruelty Case

Media Release – October 7, 2016

Calgary, AB — Immediate Release

On Thursday, October 6, 2016, Nicholas Loughran of Calgary, AB was charged under the Animal Protection Act of Alberta for allowing a dog to be in distress. The female pit bull type dog, named “Takhara”, was found running at large in an Abbeydale school yard and taken to
a veterinary clinic. Calgary Humane Society Peace Officers began investigating as the dog had several concerning, large masses on her hind end which appeared to require veterinary care.

Brad Nichols, Senior Manager, Animal Cruelty Investigations stated: “What is concerning in this case, apart from the clear need for medical intervention, was that she was left to fend for herself as a stray. Despite the suffering “Takhara” endured, she had a resilient, affectionate disposition. Sadly, due to her condition and a poor prognosis, she was humanely euthanized on the recommendation of a veterinarian. We thank the public for their support in this case as their tips were fruitful toward the ultimate charge.”

Loughran appears in Provincial court on October 11, 2016.

Officer Nichols will be available today for interviews.
