Common element

Bradley Bergman banned from owning pets for ten years after trying to hang wife’s dog.

The stiff ban on Bergman owning pets, Crown prosecutor Gord Haight said outside court, is the first to be meted out in Calgary and perhaps in Canada since changes to the Criminal Code in November 2008.

“Under the old provisions of the Code, the maximum ban on animals would have been for three years,” said Haight. “It was a brutal crime, both to the dog and Ms. Head. It’s common that in cases of animal cruelty, there is an element of domestic violence.”
