The Conservation Officer Service (COS) has recommended charges following an investigation into the shooting death of a therapy dog that took place in September 2017.

The incident occurred on a trail at Lucille Lake between Squamish and Whistler along Highway 99, where a hunter accidentally shot the dog.

Sargent Simon Gravel says COS has recommended two charges under the Wildlife Act; ‘Hunt without consideration for the lives, safety or property of others’ and ‘A person commits an offence if the person hunts, takes, traps, wounds or kills wildlife, at a time not within the open season’.
