Public Statement from MP Larry Miller – Allegations of Animal Abuse at Holstein Rabbit Farm

 

Please find below, a public statement from Larry Miller, Member of Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, regarding allegations of animal abuse at a rabbit farm near Holstein, Ontario:

 

“The allegations of animal abuse at a rabbit farm near Holstein are very concerning. In the strongest possible degree, I condemn any cruelty to animals and those who partake in such activities or allow suffering to animals in their care – both of which are punishable offences under the Criminal Code of Canada. My office has been in contact with the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Ontario SPCA) and has been advised that an investigation is underway. I put my trust in the appropriate authorities to conduct a fulsome investigation and lay charges if offences are found to have been committed. I encourage all members of the public to do the same. I have received a great deal of correspondence through social media from concerned individuals. Please be advised that my office does not respond to requests through social media platforms. Concerned individuals from my riding are welcome to contact my office for a response.”
