Sentencing has been postponed for a convicted animal abuser.
Catherine Adams will find out this November—what kind of sentence she’s facing.
Her first conviction happened in 2014 in BC–after starving horses, dogs, cats birds and fish were found on her property.
The horses were so hungry—they were actually eating wood to stay alive.
Adams and her mother got a fine for that—plus 6-months conditional house arrest for Catherine–and a 15-day stint behind bars for Karin.
Just this past July—Adams’s mother Karin was arrested in Innisfail–where she had been keeping dogs in her motel room.
Mounties say a woman had also been posing as a law enforcement officer–and tried to take a dog from its owner–but the owner put a stop to it.
That was two weeks after the SPCA in Quesnel, BC—seized 16 dogs from a property the two women had.
The dogs were being kept in tiny cages with little or no access to water and fresh air.
The Crown wants Adams thrown in prison—and banned for life from owning animals.
Adams thinks community service would be enough. She says she’s being harassed and has received death threats.
The judge didnt agree with her way of thinking–and will hand down her sentence in Drumheller court—-in November. (photo credit–CBC/BC SPCA)
