County: Chittenden

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: man

The Hamilton Burlington SPCA has laid charges against the Burlington owner of a dog for allegedly allowing it to suffer and not providing appropriate care.

The HBSPCA has charged a local man for allegedly "allowing an animal to suffer" under the Ontario SPCA Act, the organization stated in a news release. Officers attended an address on Bennett Road on Oct. 21 in response to several complaints from residents in the area.

An investigation revealed a dog had been allowed to convulse from continuous seizures for more than an 18- hour period without being brought for medical attention, the HBSPCA alleges. The dog was seized and brought to a local animal hospital where, despite receiving substantial treatment and medication, it had to be euthanized.

A 46-year-old man has been charged with one count of failing to provide medical attention and one count of permitting an animal to be in distress. He's scheduled to appear in a Burlington court on Jan. 26.
