Woman accused of throwing two dogs into a fire at an Alberta campground
GRANDE PRAIRIE — A B.C. woman accused of throwing two dogs in plastic kennels into a fire at an Alberta campground faces animal cruelty charges.
RCMP say one of the dogs died in the fire and the other ran off from the flames and couldn’t be found and is presumed dead.
Police believe the woman had been drinking.
The incident happened July 7, but just became public.
Debra Holden, 53, of Fort St. John, B.C., faces two charges each of injuring and endangering animals and causing unnecessary suffering.
She has been released on the condition that she can’t own dogs and is to appear next month in Grande Prairie, Alta., provincial court.
