Calgary, AB — Immediate Release
On May 26, 2015, Calgary Humane Society’s Protection and Investigations team, with assistance from Calgary Police Service, Animal Services and Calgary Fire Department, seized 1,123 animals from a NE property.
In total officers seized: 3 dogs, 3 cats, 80 fish, 1,037 domesticated mice many of which were in very poor health.
During the course of the seizure, the property was deemed uninhabitable by the health inspector due to unsanitary conditions.
Brad Nichols, Senior Manager, Cruelty Investigations said: “By volume, this is the largest animal seizure in Calgary history. 275 animals had to be euthanized on intake due to injuries. It will take some time to sift through all of the veterinary evidence, but it is fair to say that charges are pending.”
