Canada Animal Abusers

A new study lists the four Canadian provinces and territories with the highest concentration of animal abuse.

In 2010, Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Quebec claimed the most egregious records for animal abuse and neglect in Canada according to a new report from the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF). The report examined the animal protection laws of each jurisdiction, researching 12 separate categories of laws and provisions throughout hundreds of statues to compile the list. The organization also considered the varying laws covering animal rights and welfare, and concluded that conditions are the worst for animals living in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. For the second year in a row, Ontario was named the best Canadian province for animals.
