Pierrefonds-Roxboro man claims animal trap killed dog in park

WATCH ABOVE: Jean Jallet wants Pierrefonds-Roxboro officials to investigate after he claims his dog was caught and killed in an animal trap at the Bois de Liesse Nature Park. Global's Billy Shields reports.


Jean Jallet was walking his dog, Buster, Friday night in the Bois-de-Liesse Nature Park in Pierrefonds-Roxboro, west of downtown Montreal, when he says the unthinkable happened.

He heard a loud snap and when he turned around, Jallet discovered the Boston Terrier had been caught in an animal trap, which designed to kill large rodents like beavers.

Jallet said Buster’s neck was snapped.

The distraught dog owner said he wants answers from the borough, pointing out he was walking his dog in a public space.

Borough officials told Global News they are aware of the situation and are looking into the problem.

Until something is done, Jallet said he will destroy or remove any animal traps he finds in the park.
