Tyler Bezanson, 29, from Annapolis County, has been charged with five counts of permitting an animal to be in distress, contrary to Section 26 (2) of the Animal Protection Act of Nova Scotia.
On June 7, 2022, Nova Scotia SPCA Enforcement Officers received a call that a number of dogs were suffering from neglect. Officers responded and found five dogs at the residence that appeared to be in distress. As a result of the living conditions and unhealthy physical appearance, officers seized the dogs, and all were taken immediately for veterinary care.
After a thorough investigation by SPCA officers, it was determined that there was sufficient evidence to support charges against the owner of the dogs. Bezanson is scheduled to appear in Annapolis Provincial Court on September 19, 2022.
