Pictou RCMP charges two people for animal cruelty

On April 12, Pictou District RCMP responded to a complaint of two people who had a rifle in their possession in their vehicle on Depot St.

Shortly after police arrived on scene, they determined that the weapon was a pellet gun.

The two suspects were arrested without incident. A 28-year-old man from Scotch Hill and a 44-year-old woman from Pictou are facing charges of Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose and Causing Animals or Birds Unnecessary Suffering.

Both were released from custody and are scheduled to appear in Pictou Provincial Court on June 6.
