A trail of blood led police to two suspects who allegedly beat a family
dog and dragged the animal behind a vehicle in Didsbury. The dog's
were so severe a veterinarian called to the scene had to euthanize the
on the spot.

"This was definitely, in my 10 years of policing, the most horrendous act
I've seen against an animal," said Cpl. Kevin Fischer of the RCMP in
Didsbury, 90 kilometres north of Calgary.

A couple found the female Collie-Lab cross lying in the street near Ross
Ford Elementary School in the northwest corner of town early Sunday.
frantic phone call woke Dr. Andy Mencarelli, a veterinarian at the Krebs
clinic in Didsbury, who went to the scene. The dog's legs were bound
together with duct tape and there was a tow rope around its neck.

Its head was wrapped in a bag. "There was blood everywhere," said

The dog was able to lift its head, but in too much shock to make any
sound, he said.

When Mencarelli lifted the dog to the back of his truck to euthanize it,
the true extent of the animal's injuries became apparent.

"This dog was just broken," he said, adding its neck, pelvis, back and
skull were fractured.

Investigators believe the six or seven-year-old dog endured a beating
prior to being tied up and hitched to a vehicle.

"Indications are the dog was dragged behind a vehicle," Fischer said. The
dog had no tags, tattoos or obvious identification, but police officers
followed a trail of blood to a local home.

Police have laid charges against two teenagers, but Fischer said
they are no closer to learning a motive for the crime.
"There is nothing, at this point," he said.

Daniel Charles Haskett, 19, of Didsbury has been charged under the
Criminal Code with injuring/endangering an animal and causing
unnecessary suffering to an animal. He is also charged with obstructing

A 17-year-old male, whose identity is protected by the Youth Criminal
Justice Act, is charged with injuring/endangering an animal and causing
unnecessary suffering to an animal.

For adult offenders, each of the animal cruelty charges has a maximum
penalty of a $2,000 fine or six months in jail - or both.

The case is also being investigated by the Alberta Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

A conviction under the province's Animal Protection Act can carry a
maximum penalty of a $20,000 fine and a lifetime ban from owning animals,
but an official said no further charges are being contemplated.

"We have been notified of it and are having some follow up involvement,"
said Morris Airey, the Alberta SPCA's director of enforcement.

The two suspects are scheduled to appear in Didsbury provincial court on
Nov 6.

I would like to start a petition to show politicians and mayors etc.,
others have heard this story and would like to see something done to
these two offenders, more than just a fine or 6 months in jail.The two boys
should be made an example of, that cruelty to animals will not be
tolerated.  Lets speak for those who can't speak for themselves, and lets speak for this
poor dog who was absolutely defenceless. When this page reaches 500
