(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yet another animal abuser has been convicted in Thunder Bay. This time the abuser has been court ordered not to have any animals for a period of two years.
Most people would think this is a light sentence, and it does appear to be such. 2 years is ample time for anyone truly looking to learn how to be better to an animal. If after two years the abuser reoffends, we can look forward to a stiffer penalty.
The Justice of the Peace found Kevin Adams guitly of causing distress to an animal on April 15th, 2019. Not only was the two year “no animals” ban ordered, but a $500 fine as well.
The facts of the case are that on November 15, 2017 Adams came into the Thunder Bay and District Humane Society to surrender a dog. Sadly, the dog needed to be euthanized after its condition was seen to be extremely poor. The dog had a severe skin infection.
The circumstances resulted in an OSPCA agent at the Humane Society to launch an investigation into the dogs well-being. That investigation resulted in the charges being laid against Adams.
