Animals as Property in Criminal Cases – Part 2 (11mins)

In Animal Law, Cruelty, Litigation, Video Blogs by Peter Sankoff

In a follow-up to yesterday’s video blog, I concentrate on the Ontario legislation that is at the heart of the decision to euthanize 21 dogs seized in a dog fighting ring.  Long story short: the law puts humane societies in a tough spot. We need better laws to make seizure a more palatable proposition, and allow the interests of animals to be put ahead of the interests of those who abuse them.
