A judge has fined a Calgary man $5,000 after 34 dogs were seized from his home.

CALGARY — A judge has fined a Calgary man $5,000 after 34 dogs were seized from his home.

The Calgary Humane Society says animal control officers found the dogs in distress in April 2011.

They say the animals had inadequate space, water and medical care.

All but two of the dogs were pit bulls.

Joseph Michael Hogan, who is 34, was convicted of an offence under Alberta’s Animal Protection Act.

The judge also ruled that Hogan can own no more than three pets at a time for the rest of his life.
