Trooper goes to school

A dog named Trooper is helping some Moncton students learn more about bullying and resiliance. Trooper was taken to the SPCA a couple of weeks ago with serious wounds after being attacked by other dogs. He went to West Riverview Elementary School recently to demonstrate the harm that bullying can have on dogs.

Sheldon Donovan is a Grade 5 student at the school. Sheila Johnston is his teacher. They spoke with the CBC's Karen Rawlines.
