  2. Authorities with the Calgary Humane Society say charges have been laid against a Rocky View County man after images of a dog strapped to a flatbed trailer while on a highway went viral late last month. Officials were notified about an image circulating on social media on October 28, 2017. The photo was of a tethered dog sitting on a flatbed trailer that was being driven through the city. An investigation was launched shortly afterwards by the Calgary Police Service and Calgary Humane Society. Charges laid against Alberta man after dog found tethered to trailer on highway The dog's owner, Volodymyr Irodenko has since been charged in multiple offences, including causing an animal to be in distress and transporting an animal outside the cab of a vehicle. Brad Nichols, the senior manager of Animal Cruelty Investigations, says transporting dogs in truck beds can be extremely dangerous for the dog because of exposure to the weather and the risk of falling. "This offense is aggravated by the manner in which this dog was being transported, on a flatbed with no side rails to keep him on the trailer. We are very lucky, in Calgary, to have agencies that can work together so effectively to ensure the well being of animals and accountability for reckless owners.” Nichols says the public outrage mainly came from the fact that there was no protection for the dog on the flatbed whatsoever. "We don't general deal with dogs in the backs of trucks because, generally, it's a bylaw matter. It does sometimes enter the realm of animal welfare. This was egregious because there was nothing to keep that dog on its own balance from falling off." Fortunately the dog wasn't injured in the incident, but Nichols says that doesn't make the charges any less serious. "The dog is in custody currently. Animals are property by law so I can't say that there is no possibility of the dog going home but at this point, it is in custody and there are conditions for the owner to not be in care of animals so there are barriers." Acting Sergeant Dennis Smithson with the CPS says Irodenko could be facing some stiff fines and prohibitions from owning and caring for animals. He says aside from turning himself in, Irodenko has not been cooperative with the investigation. The investigation, however, worked out well, especially with the coordinated effort. "We had the Humane Society assist wtih us, we had Rocky View Enforcement team and Community Safety Standard Bylaw in Calgary go out to his home with us to seize the animal. It was pretty much a group effort by four organizations." Smithson said a number of witnesses contacted them about the incident, including two calls to dispatchers about the truck. Irodenko's first court appearance is in early December. Glad the dog is okay and they caught him, poor puppy

  15. On Saturday evening, an Edmonton police officer was struck by a car and stabbed, and four pedestrians struck as the suspect fled in a U-Haul truck, in what authorities are calling a “lone wolf” terrorist attack. The initial attack took place outside the Commonwealth Stadium, with the ensuing police chase proceeding to downtown Edmonton where the suspect, a 30-year-old Somali national, injured four pedestrians with his vehicle before eventually being apprehended. Here’s what we know so far about the attacks: Edmonton Police Const. Mike Chernyk attacked The attacks began outside the Commonwealth Stadium, where some 30,000 spectators were in attendance to watch the Edmonton Eskimos take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a CFL game At 8:15 p.m., a white Chevrolet Malibu rammed into a traffic barricade outside the stadium at high speed, striking Const. Mike Chernyk and sending him flying five metres into the air. The suspect then exited the vehicle and stabbed Const. Chernyk several times with a large knife. Footage appeared to show the police officer wrestling with the driver on the ground, before the two get to their feet and the suspect flees across the street Just before midnight, a police officer pulled over a rented U-Haul truck at a checkpoint less than two kilometres away from the stadium, and asked to see the driver’s license. The police officer noticed the driver’s name was similar to that of the registered owner of the white Malibu that struck Const. Chernyk. When the officer returned to his vehicle to call for back-up, the suspect took off towards downtown Edmonton, and police began their pursuit. Around 11:30 p.m., Global News reporter Laurel Gregory was wrapping up a live report for Global Edmonton’s News at 11, when a police officer asked her to take cover behind a tree or a car.
