When SPCA officials in Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada received a call from a complainant about a man abusing his dog, they decided to visit the apartment complex where the incident allegedly took place.

 

Thankfully, security footage captured the disturbing event and could be used as evidence against the abuser. As a direct result of the phone call and the video proof, authorities were able to seize the dog and take her into custody.

 

Retired veterinarian Hugh Chisholm told media, “She was trying to get away from him, which was the first sign she was afraid. She had her ears back, she was cowering, her tail was down between her legs, she just kept trying to get away.”

 

The 31-year-old abuser, a man named Adam DeCoste, was ordered to pay a fine of $1,000 and sentenced to a three-year prohibition on owning animals.

 

“This case is very important for animal welfare law because it is the first case in Nova Scotia we have secured a conviction for causing pain, suffering and undue anxiety to an animal,” shared Jo-Anne Landsburg, chief inspector at Nova Scotia SPCA.

The dog, a Husky named Sophie, has since been adopted out to a new loving home.

Please be advised the video below contains the actual footage of abuse, along with further information about the case.
