Man facing animal abuse rap

A Chestermere area man faces charges of animal abuse against two dogs after witnesses called the RCMP, authorities said yesterday.

Sgt. Patrick Webb said while they can’t get into details about the incident, he says the alleged abuse involves a quad and two larger mixed-breed dogs.

“We’re still talking to witnesses and we don’t want them to be persuaded by what they hear … The dogs are doing well,” Webb said, adding the animals will not be returned to the owner.

Animal activist Heather Anderson said she heard few details about the case.

“I’m happy someone at least took into their own hands to call the RCMP,” Anderson said.

Tom Bilski, 27, is set to appear in Strathmore Provincial Court on May 5.
