|A Likely, B.C. man has received a 10-year ban on owning animals in a BC SPCA cruelty investigation stemming from 2006. Guy William Smith was banned from keeping animals for the next decade after he was convicted of badly neglected 30 husky-malamute dogs in his care. The dogs were seized from his property in September 2006 and he was charged under both the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and the Criminal Code of Canada. An arrest warrant was issued for Smith in May 2007 after he failed to appear for a court appearance to face the animal cruelty charges.
