Woman pleads guilty to puppy mill cruelty
May Poon was facing eight charges under Alberta's Animal Protection Act, including causing distress to animals.
In April, a neighbour discovered 32 dogs and 10 cats housed in small cages — without adequate water or food and soiled with feces and urine — in Poon's home. He called the Humane Society, which spent months investigating the case.
Poon pleaded guilty Thursday to two charges of failing to provide proper care for an animal. On top of the fine, she is also banned from owning pets.
