Two men have been handed down fines and a 20-year ban from owning animals in a “very serious case” of animal cruelty, according to the New Brunswick SPCA.

Two Miramichi, N.B. men have been handed down hundreds of dollars in fines and a 20-year ban from owning animals in a “very serious case” of animal cruelty, according to the New Brunswick SPCA.
In a release sent Thursday, New Brunswick SPCA said Bernard Bouchard was convicted this week for failing to provide a dog with adequate medical attention when the animal was wounded and willful neglect in providing food, water, shelter, and care.
In addition, Hugo Bouchard was convicted of failing to provide a dog with medical attention and sentenced to a 20-year prohibition from owning animals, and a fine of $500.
“Link’s was a very serious case of animal cruelty. The sentence given by the judge in this case should serve as a reminder to pet owners that if you fail to look after your animals, you could face serious consequences,” said Tony Porter with New Brunswick SPCA.
