CALGARY — A Calgary woman has been fined $1,000 and prohibited from owning an animal for 10 years for abandoning an injured puppy outside a vet clinic.
Cynthia Guan was charged after Mike, a Doberman puppy, was found inside a bloody kennel in November 2009.
The pup was severely underweight and dehydrated and was in such bad shape the veterinarians could only guess its age — they thought he was about three months old.
Mike also had head injuries and a broken front leg.
A six-month investigation led to the charges against Guan.
The Daisy Foundation says the laws to protect animals don’t go far enough
