After escaping the horrible wildfires in Fort McMurray and traveling for weeks in the back of a pick-up truck, Lucy the Pitbull is stuck in Manitoba because of the Ontario Pitbull ban.
her owners are headed to Prince Edward Island so they can stay with family.
But they can’t drive through Ontario with their dog!
Ontario has a ban that prevents owning pit bulls, as well as bringing them into the province.
They can’t go through the United States because they don’t have passports.
they looked into getting the dog on a flight but most flights connect through Ontario with overnight layovers.
The Ontario Attorney General’s website details that a pit bull brought into the province can be seized and its owner subject to a fine and/or jail time. Exceptions are made for pit bulls participating in recognized dog shows tournaments.
