Mom and daughter in B.C. animal abuse case face more charges in Alberta
CEREAL, Alta. – A mother and daughter charged in an animal abuse case in British Columbia have been arrested in Alberta, where police say they’ll face more animal abuse charges.
Cpl. Jeff Clarke says the names of the mother and daughter won’t be released until the charges against them are officially sworn.
A news release from the RCMP states the pair failed to comply with release conditions from the charges they faced in B.C. and were located at a rural residence south of Cereal, about 225 kilometres northeast of Calgary.
It states that when officers searched the property, 11 horses, 25 dogs and 17 birds were found to be in distress.
The mother and daughter have been charged with failing to comply with conditions of an undertaking, cruelty to animals, wilful neglect of animals and possession of stolen property.
They’re scheduled to appear in Hanna Provincial Court on Oct. 28.
