July 27, 2012: Update
The BC SPCA has recommended charges to crown counsel in the case of Captain, a two-year-old German shepherd rescued from a dumpster in Vancouver that subsequently died on July 19. The recommendation is that the person responsible for Captain’s injuries be charged with causing unnecessary suffering pursuant to section 445.1(1)(a) of the criminal code and if convicted, a person could face up to a maximum of five years in prison and/or a lifetime ban on owning animals. At this time, the BC SPCA is not able to name the person we have recommended charges against as we are still awaiting crown’s approval. Once charges have been accepted, we will be able to provide more details as to who has been charged in this case.
