It works to Manifest and show the government we are not happy! Many of us found out on Saturday that the City of Boucherville had suspended its contract with the house of torture of the Berger Blanc. And just like Boucherville took the first step towards what is right…many more will. We manifest for what is right and that is justified! Let us continue giving a voice to animals! Keep sharing the links to petitions and articles! The more people know, the faster we will see them crumble!

Berger Blanc’s contract suspended in Boucherville
April 21, 2011 – Chris Beatrice and Maxime Dorais
Following the report of the investigation team from Radio-Canada presented April 21, the City of Boucherville suspend temporarily extended the contract of this company.
The third extended the contract of impounded animal to capture, collection of dead animals, cage rentals and issuing licenses for dogs, city council voted last April 19, will be suspended until the City has more information to decide the appropriate action.
The investigative report showed, using a hidden camera, unusual practices in the euthanasia of animals. These are not euthanized by a veterinarian as required by law, the operation is performed by a technician instead. The animals were not anesthetized before receiving intracardiac injection.
The video showed animals in convulsions for minutes. The death of animals, which should be almost instantaneous, can sometimes take up to several hours. The undercover employee for Radio-Canada has even identified that animals are occasionally thrown in the trash without being dead. Moreover, a veterinarian should observe the absence of vital signs, omitted to make this the technician in charge of euthanasia.
Instead of being incinerated as want contracts with the City of Montreal, the animals are discarded at the dump in trenches dug into the garbage.
