If convicted, the zoo owner faces up to five years imprisonment and a life-long ban on keeping animals. The SPCA, which is authorized to exercise police power in the province of Quebec, claims to have received evidence of maltreatment for the first time in August 2018. As a result, “serious problems” were found in the health and living conditions of the animals. Initially, however, only two alpacas were confiscated.

“To our knowledge, this is the first time a pet owner in Canada is accused of animal cruelty,” said Sophie Gaillard, who led the operation. The study of the animals will probably take a few weeks, she added. They will be brought to shelters and specialized care facilities in North America.
