Lawsuit filed by Kamloops man over dead dog "has merit," animal advocate says

November 23,2018 - Kamloops

An animal advocacy group says there’s some teeth to a lawsuit filed by a Kamloops man over his dead dog.

Burke Nesjan’s two-year-old dog died in his arms on Nov. 14, 2017, after its neck got stuck in a hunting trap next to the Darlington Forest Service Road, north of Kamloops.

In a notice of claim filed on Nov. 7 in Kamloops court, Nesjan says he was driving to work with his dog, a two-year-old purebred Akita named Kuma, and stopped at a pullout 29 kilometers down the forest road to let his dog out.
