Cavan Monaghan Resident Charged In Animal Cruelty Investigation

KAWARTHA LAKES-A 23-year-old Cavan Monaghan woman is facing charges after an animal cruelty investigation.

Videos showing a horse being dragged behind a vehicle with bleeding hooves was sent to Kawartha 411 News last week. It is unclear where the video was taken or by whom. Due to the disturbing nature of the footage we are not showing the video.

The Ministry of the solicitor General confirmed to Kawartha 411 that charges have been laid.

“The ministry can confirm that Solstice Pecile of the Township of Cavan Monaghan has been charged with “Causing Distress to an Animal” under Section 15 (1) of the Provincial Animal Welfare Services Act.  It is expected that the accused will appear in court on January 11, 2023 at the Cobourg Provincial Offences Court.   Given this matter is now before the court, it would be inappropriate to provide further detail.” said Brent Ross, Spokesperson, Ministry of the Solicitor General

The Northumberland OPP opened an investigation on November 3.  Members of the Northumberland Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in conjunction with Animal Welfare Service, embarked on an investigation after police received information regarding the video that had been posted online that involved a horse.
