In Alberta, Canada, a woman tried to mail small puppies and a kitten at the post office in Milo. Jill Marshall, 53, was charged under the Animal Protection Act, according to a news release from the Vulcan County Enforcement Services on Wednesday.
According to the Edmonton Journal, Marshall placed the small animals in a cardboard box on May 7 and again on May 17. In the first incident, a puppy and a kitten in the box had been labeled with an address and appropriate postage. The puppy and kitten had stamps attached to their heads. The second incident included another puppy in a small cardboard box.
During the investigation, the shipping addresses on the boxes were found to be fake. Live animals can not be mailed unless a previous agreement has been arranged.
Marshall now faces two counts of causing an animal distress. Officer Sgt. Rob Pintkowski stated Marshall has no previous animal related convictions.
Some may believe that fostering is just “too hard,” but the pay off is incredible! Spread the word, you can survive fostering, and save a life in the process! This beautiful design reads, “I survived loving a foster dog until a furever home was found” #Youcantoo
