The Toronto Sun ran an intriguing article yesterday about a Canadian case of animal cruelty. A raid by Toronoto police last month resulted in the seizure of animal skeletons and over 70 videotapes including one depicting a cat being tortured and killed.
Two men, Anthony Ryan Wenneker, 24, and Jessie Champlain Powers, 21, have already been arrested and charged with animal cruelty in the case, and a third man, known only as “Matt”, is being sought. The twist is that “Matt” is apparently well known in the area as a vegan and animal rights activist.
So far police are saying that the motive for the torture and killing of the cat and other animals was unclear, but already there is speculation by some anti-animal rights activists that the trio may have been creating video scenes of animal torture to pass of as pro-animal rights propaganda. Only time will tell if that speculation is accurate.
