Gull Lake dog owners appeal convictions

  • Print

A Gull Lake couple convicted of hoarding 64 dogs in dank sheds on their homestead are appealing their sentences and ban on animal ownership.

In February, Judge Carena Roller sentenced Peter Chernecki, 64, to four months in jail and ordered his wife, Judith, 63, to pay $21,500 in fines and serve two years of probation.

Roller also banned the pair from owning or possessing animals -- save for two cats -- for a five-year period.

Animal-welfare officials lauded the sentence in what was considered to be one of the worst animal-hoarding in Manitoba.
