Esquimalt man receives lifetime ban on owning animals

An Esquimalt man has received a lifetime ban on owning animals following a BCSPCA animal cruelty investigation.

Hubert Henry was charged with neglecting his female pit bull last summer.

The one-year-old dog was tethered outdoors without access to adequate food, water or shelter until she was seized by SPCA special constables in May 2013.

“Skylar is an amazing dog,” said SPCA Const. Lynsay Bailey.

“She was living in the worst possible circumstances, but she is so resilient.”

Bailey said the SPCA recommended the lifetime ban in the case because Henry was also found guilty of animal cruelty in 2009 for the neglect of two other pit bulls.

The two dogs were seized by the SPCA.
