READERS REACT: Surrey homeless woman says city wrongly euthanized her dog

Our readers share their opinion about this incident involving a homeless woman from Whalley

It took an online viral video to bring this story from July to light.

On July 16th, 2017, 22-year-old Candice Lander had her dog seized by bylaw officers and taken to the Surrey Animal Resource Centre.

That was the last time she saw her dog, Cesar, alive.

The city took the dog after they claim that there were ‘multiple attacks’ from Cesar, although no documentation regarding such incident has been obtained by the Now-Leader.

After the story gained traction online, our readers commented on the controversial incident.
