Three people charged after dog found wandering in Calgary dies of injuries (Video)

Three people are facing charges in what Calgary Humane Society officials are calling one of the worst cases of neglect they’ve seen.

It was in September 2014 that a severely neglected and injured bulldog was found near an Ogden strip mall and taken to an emergency veterinary clinic.

The dog, named Ruby by clinic staff, was suffering from several facial and body wounds, emaciation, eye and ear infections and chronic internal infection.

Unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries during surgery.
Public tips and an investigation resulted in a search warrant at a home where 11 other animals were seized in varying levels of neglect.

Janice Piper and Jamie O’Leary were both charged under the Criminal Code with respect to 4 animals, including Ruby’s case.

Michelle Caswell was charged with 5 counts under the Animal Protection Act, with respect to 7 animals.

O’Leary was previously charged and convicted with an Animal Protection Act offense.

“This was one of the worst cases of neglect we have seen,” Brad Nichols with the Calgary Humane Society said in a release. “Ruby was suffering from so many serious issues. Ruby was an exceptionally sweet dog whose tail wagged to the very end, despite the pain that she was suffering.”

Peace Officer Lisa Callow agrees, saying Ruby’s injuries were severe and long-term.

The three accused are to appear in court March 31st.
