BC Animal Cruelty Law

The Canadian province of British Columbia has introduced tougher animal cruelty laws.

In response to a mass killing of Whistler sled dogs, British Columbia, has introduced legislation calling for stricter penalties for animal cruelty. If the new legislation became law, maximum penalites for animal-cruelty offenders will be $75,000 Canadian dollars (up from $10,000), and up to 24 months of imprisonment (up from six months). “Animal welfare is an issue that touches all of us,” says Don McRae, BC’s Minister of Agriculture, in a press release. “These proposed amendments to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act demonstrate that BC is reacting quickly and decisively to show that acts of cruelty against animals will not be tolerated in this province.”
