A Port Renfrew man has been charged with animal cruelty after a dog was attacked on Monday morning.
The two-year-old German shepherd-husky cross had hot coffee poured on its face when it approached the 18-year-old suspect in Port Renfrew
There was no indication the man was in danger or the dog was acting in an aggressive manner, said RCMP Sgt. Clayton Weibe.
“For some reason, this young man chose to take a very poorly considered action and poured the hot coffee into the dog’s eyes,” Weibe said.
The dog is recovering from its injuries.
The man was taken into custody, charged, and released pending a court date.
