Animal Welfare and Protection

Cowichan Tribes and BC SPCA Partnership

March 22, 2018

Cowichan Tribes, the BC SPCA, and RCMP met on March 15, 2018 to discuss “Teddy” who was a severely neglected dog seized by the BC SPCA on February 16, 2018.

The meeting’s agenda was about moving forward for solutions to prevent neglect to animals or pets in the future. Chief William Seymour speaking on the incident says “It is unfortunate what the poor dog went through, and we hope with greater education on proper treatment, and how to identify and report an animal in need of care, we can prevent cases like this in the future”.  “Teddy” was unknown to the Cowichan Tribes Bylaw Officer or to the BC SPCA until he was reported and discovered on February 16.
