Gull Lake couple facing 19 charges over neglected dogs

A Gull Lake couple in the middle of an animal abuse scandal last summer have been charged with 19 counts under the Animal Care Act.

The Office of the Chief Veterinary Officer announced this morning that Peter and Judith Chernecki, of Gull Lake, will be in Winnipeg Provincial Court March 3 to enter a plea.

Authorities seized 64 dogs from the Cherneckis property in mid-July after it was discovered the dogs were caked in dirt and their own feces, had urine burns on their paws, and were being kept in a window-less garage.

One-third of the dogs had to be euthanized.
