Alberta SPCA investigating reported animal mistreatment at hog exchange

The Alberta SPCA has opened an investigation into allegations of the mistreatment of animals at a hog exchange in Red Deer. The incidents reported to the Alberta SPCA appear to be the same ones featured in an episode of the CTV news program W5 that first aired on 11 October 2014.

“A large amount of written notes and video footage has been delivered to our Animal Protection Services,” says Roland Lines, communications manager for the Alberta SPCA. “I have seen a small part of the video, and some of what it depicts is very disturbing. Our peace officers are working diligently to complete a full investigation.”

Peace officers employed by the Alberta SPCA have authority to run investigations and lay charges under Alberta’s Animal Protection Act. Someone convicted under the act could be prohibited from owning, caring for or working with animals. That person could also be fined up to $20,000.
