Thunder Bay Man Convicted of Animal Cruelty


Thunder Bay – NEWS – A 31-year-old Thunder Bay man has been prohibited from owning animals for a period of two years after being found guilty under the Provincial Animal Welfare Legislation relating to the treatment of a dog in his care.

Kevin ADAMS was found guilty on April 16th, 2019, of causing distress to an animal. The Justice of the Peace sentenced ADAMS to a 2-year prohibition preventing him from owning or caring for animals and was fined $500.

On November 15, 2017, ADAMS came into the Thunder Bay and District Humane Society (TBDHS) and surrendered a dog. Unfortunately, the condition of the dog was very poor, due to a severe skin infection, the dog was humanely euthanized the same day.

Due to the circumstances, an OSPCA Agent at the TBDHS initiated an investigation. Due to the information that was gathered during the investigation, the male was subsequently charged.
