It is a sad story of farm animals being treated badly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
here is the story written by CETFA (canadians for ethical treatment of food animals), they are asking to mail the police department (address is there). I know we have some people from Quebec, i think their letters would be great, I wrote but i am not sure they care about opinions from toronto....<br><br><br><a href="http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/756297/4c0cdda809/1470571775/c83b444685/" target="_blank">http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/7...75/c83b444685/</a>

Yes, I think I heard about it on the news earlier. It was terrible. It seems in Quebec, there are quite a lot of animal abuse/brutality against animals incidents. It wasn't long ago that I heard a bunch of dogs were found somewhere in Quebec in terrible shape and neglected. A couple of years ago, dozens of huskies were found either dead or starved at a breeder's place.

they will never be punished <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
here is the response i got:<br><br>
Hi,<br><br>
We have read your email. As you may have heard or read about it through Media, the Service de police de la Ville de Gatineau launched an administrative investigation that will give rise to recommendations that we will carefully review. This investigation is standard procedure when a police officer uses a gun and we all stand to learn something from this unfortunate event.<br><br>
In closing, we invite you to read a few extracts from an open letter to the Media published on November 1st, 2011.<br><br>
“Why did the police not use tranquilizers? Why weren’t wildlife officers or by-law officers called? Why were the two animals not simply corralled? What kind of danger could these two animals, who seemed so inoffensive and at first glance nothing more than frightened, pose to residents? These are all legitimate questions.”<br><br>
“We are aware that the contents of the video, which is 77 seconds long, shows a scene that makes it difficult to remain impassive. However, this video does not reflect the reality of the intervention, which lasted more than an hour. An hour during which the police contacted wildlife officers who, unfortunately were unable to assist us. An hour during which the officers collaborated with the owner and other cattle breeders and farmers who came to lend a hand in an attempt to try to calm the animals and isolate them in a safe place or herd them into the trailer. An hour during which every attempt failed, and during which one of the animals, who may not have appeared dangerous to witnesses who had not seen the preceding 60 minutes, charged vehicles, moved a trailer by its sheer physical strength, and managed to once again escape, right there in the city near a school and busy roads. What would have happened if the police had not killed the animals?”<br><br>
“Our police officers are trained to protect the public. They are professionals, and they conduct more than 75,000 police interventions annually. While none of them wants to see an animal suffer, public safety must be the primary consideration. Our values and our mission demand that a decision be made to protect residents and act safely. This decision was taken in collaboration with cattle breeders and farmers who know just how dangerous these animals can be, and are competent to judge the real risks involved in the situation.”<br><br>
Regards,<br><br><br><br>
La Direction du Service de police de la Ville de Gatineau<br><br><br><br>
Look how they play bthe card that a school was near. Oh no, think what mean cows would do to CHILDREN. Once you mention the children most of the society goes a bit braindead so people won't even be mad at them anymore. they are now the heroes who saved the children from cows who were about to attack the school

That's so sad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> But the cows would've died anyway, at the slaughterhouse they were going to, so their whole fate was so doomed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">
