Just one last word on this lamb slaughter. Ms. Moriarty of the BCSPCA recently made a statement in regard to the 100 sled-dog slaughter which could be applied to this situation : "Any sort of case where it could be established throats had been cut and bled out - this is not an acceptable method of killing an animal in Canada. If the animal was bludgeoned to death and didn't die instantly."
So, this lamb killing should be investigated by the BCSPCA, as in their own words only a humane death is acceptable. So, I say to the neighbours......get on it.
