Windsor citizens rally after man charged with dog abuse
A Windsor man has been arrested and charged with causing unnecessary pain, injury or suffering to an animal after a dog, Tyson, was found lying in the grass with severe genital injuries, and later euthanized. A condom was tied around the dog's penis with an inner-tube.
Local citizens rallied in red shirts with their dogs (and a few cats) to protest the abuse. News reports say at least 350 attended, but local fur RingtailedFox (operator of VOM-DT) said there had to be at least 1200, noting that all riverfront parking lots were at capacity:
Even people in apartment buildings brought their hamsters and goldfish to the windows, and people beeped their horns in their cars.
A Facebook group, Windsor dog abuser sought, had almost 7,000 members at press time.
The dog's alleged owner, Anjalo Abeywickrema, was on parole for involuntary manslaughter. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.
