Animals killed, SPCA destroyed in Gatineau, Que., fire

  Animals killed, SPCA destroyed in Gatineau, Que., fire An overnight fire in Gatineau, Que., destroyed an SPCA and killed an unknown number of animals, officials say. Several passersby called 911 at about 10:30 p.m. ET Monday when they saw flames coming from the two-storey SPCA of Western Quebec building at 659 rue Auguste Mondoux in the Aylmer neighbourhood. Firefighters found flames engulfing the roof, which later collapsed, Gatineau's fire department said. About a dozen dogs were rescued and an unknown number of animals were killed. Damage is estimated at about $580,000. Fire officials are investigating.

In the dog -eat- dog world of politics, only one can rise to the top. Duke, a nine-year-old Great Pyrenees, has won his third term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota, in a landslide election thanks to the “highest approval ratings in the country”.

Deputy mayor is an elective or appointive office of the second-ranking official in many local governments. Many elected vice- mayors are members of the city council who are given the title and

Gatineau’s deputy mayor says she’s fed up with owners of pit bulls and other “potentially dangerous dogs” who say they don’t know the rules governing their pets.

After a young boy was bitten by a pit bull two weeks ago, Louise Boudrias is reminding them.

“In this issue, which we are still dealing with, year after year, I think the least I could do was share this information so that everyone knows that a pit bull is not a little dog to take lightly,” she said in an announcement Friday.

Boudrias is sending out a newsletter to residents of her ward, to veterinary clinics, and to pet supply stores.

She says the action comes in part because a pit bull attacked a two-year-old boy in Aylmer on June 22, biting him on the face and arm. Hugo Giroux was in his stroller. His mother was pushing him along the sidewalk when the dog ran out of the yard of a nearby home and attacked him.

Dogs banned at Hudson's Sandy Beach after attack

  Dogs banned at Hudson's Sandy Beach after attack Dogs are banned until further notice at Hudson’s Sandy Beach after a man was attacked by a dog earlier this week, leaving him with four puncture wounds in his arm. Greg Baumeister, a local resident, said he was attacked by what he described as a "pit bull-type dog" while walking along the beach on July 11. In a Facebook post, he said the dog, which was on a leash, made four "good-sized holes in my arm" before being pulled off by its owner. He declined to be interviewed by CBC News. Hudson Mayor Jamie Nicholls said Friday the incident wasn't the only reason for the ban.

Deputy mayor meets Met police and RSPCA as more than 700 dangerous dogs seized. Published: 9 Nov 2009. About 158 results for Dangerous dogs .

The thing is, not all dogs are born to merrily bark at the top of their voices at a sight of stretched out hands. Thus we would like to present you the list of the most dangerous breeds, since, as it’ s said, forewarned is forearmed.

Hugo was taken to hospital where he required stitches to his upper lip, cheek and wrist.

The dog has been euthanized and police laid charges against its owner.

Boudrias says in her newsletter that owners must sterilize pit bulls and similar dogs, have their animals vaccinated against rabies, and have them identified with a microchip or an identification tattoo. The owner and dog must pass an obedience course from a recognized trainer.

As well, it is illegal for any potentially dangerous dog to go into a city park, a city playground, a recreational trail or a dog park in Gatineau.

Last year there were 33 attacks by dogs classed as dangerous breeds in Gatineau. The city laid 216 charges against owners.

Trudeau to meet Toronto mayor John Tory .
TORONTO - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will meet with Toronto Mayor John Tory this morning, against the backdrop of the city's escalating gun violence and Ontario's clashes with Ottawa over carbon pricing and refugee resettlement. Trudeau met yesterday with newly elected Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who earlier in the day said the prime minister had put a strain on local and provincial services by encouraging asylum seekers to come to Canada illegally, and that Trudeau's government should foot 100 per cent of the bill for resettling the newcomers.
