Aen­nifer Young, the founder of the an­i­mal shel­ter and adop­tion ser­vice, The Pet Con­nec­tion, ap­peared be­fore the Sher­brooke coun­cil on Mon­day even­ing with a pe­ti­tion and a re­quest for the city to cre­ate a pub­lic seated Pet Tri­bunal. Ms. Young was mo­ti­vated to take the ac­tion af­ter hear­ing about the case of “Toxon”, a pit bull that was eu­th­a­nized two days af­ter it got into a fight with a smaller dog. Ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease, the pe­ti­tion, which has six hun­dred names on it, wants the city “to amend the death sen­tence per­tain­ing to do­mes­tic an­i­mals, dogs, where dog con­flicts are con­cerned.”
