Manitoba Vets Want Government Action
WINNIPEG, MB – A young woman, 24 year old Donnelly Rose Eaglestick, was mauled to death by a pack of dogs on the weekend at Little Grand Rapids First Nation. And now, Manitoba veterinarians and rescue groups are calling on the federal and provincial governments to take immediate action.
They say the problem can’t be fixed alone by the dozens of first nations across the province, they need help from Ottawa and the Pallister Government.
Little Grand Rapids plans to cull its stray dog population. But animal experts say killing these dogs is a traumatic last resort that takes an emotional toll on the community.
