Goal: Ensure that the dog walker accused of killing six dogs is punished for her offenses
A dog walker in British Columbia, Canada, was recently accused of killing six dogs in her care. The irresponsible woman trapped the dogs in her car on a hot day for 45 minutes while she was inside of a business. Upon returning to her car, the woman was met with six heat-stroke victims. She later lied about the deaths to the authorities and the dogs’ families. Whether the woman will be prosecuted remains to be determined. Urge the Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to heavily encourage prosecuting this woman to the fullest extent of the law.
The woman initially lied to authorities and the families of the dogs, claiming that the dogs had been stolen from the dog park she was supposed to be at with the dogs. For days, the families joined together in pursuit of their pets, raising money for their safe return while holding hope that their beloved friends would soon be home again. However, under interrogation, the dog walker admitted that she had left the dogs unattended in her truck on the very hot, fateful day.
No charges have yet been filed, though the dogs’ families and the SPCA are urging authorities to prosecute the dog walker and make her pay for her crime. Because this woman was severely negligent in her trade, attempted to cover up her grotesque mistake and then disposed of the bodies while allowing the dogs’ families to grieve and hold hope for their pets’ return, she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. What she did was incredibly vile, abusive, neglectful and all around irresponsible. By signing this petition, you aid the SPCA in achieving the woman’s prosecution, ensuring that she is unable to hurt another pet.
Dear Ms. Moriarty,
A dog walker in British Columbia, Canada, was recently accused of killing six dogs in her care. Due to negligence and abuse, the dogs died of heat stroke in the woman’s truck while she was within the cool, comfortable confines of an indoor business. Because the woman tried to cover up her mistake by disposing of the bodies and falsifying their disappearance by touting a dog-napping story, she should be severely punished and forced to face her deadly mistake.
It is not yet clear if the woman will receive due punishment—her fate currently rests in the hands of prosecutors. It is my understanding that the SPCA is pushing for the woman to be punished by law. I encourage your organization to use the signatures generated by this petition to urge the woman’s prosecution. The negligent woman must be punished by law and not allowed to watch pets again.
