SPCA seizes huskies from abandoned farm
About two dozen abandoned huskies, found on a farm in Bulyea, have been seized by Saskatoon's SPCA.
The SPCA, RCMP, and a vet deemed the animals to be in distress after checking on them on Wednesday.
Kayley Pugh with the SPCA says mounties showed up with a vet to check on the dogs. She says the SPCA had been getting complaints from neighbours
"As of yesterday, we received adequate evidence that the dogs were in distress and obtained a search warrant, had the dogs assessed by a vetrinarean and seizure of the dogs was recommended."
Twenty-seven dogs and two puppies were taken away. Unfortunately, one of the dogs had to be euthanized but the remaining pack is being fed and watered, and is reportedly in good shape.
The dogs will stay at the SPCA for three days. After that the owner can pay the seizure costs, and the animals will be returned.
If he doesn't pay, the dogs will be adopted out.
