Trevor was not treated fairly, right from the get go.

Seeing that Trevor belongs to the Humane Society Yukon (not the city), and seeing that the city could just have dealt with Trevor under the “dangerous” dog guidelines of the city bylaws (like they have done many times in the past with other dogs), the city could have avoided this whole expensive, frustrating ordeal.

CBC’s coverage of this week’s court hearing for Trevor was good this time, thorough and mostly accurate.

The Star’s Justine Davidson didn’t cover it very well though, with her practically pinning the blame for Whitehorse’s expensive legal vendetta on Trevor the dog himself. Trevor did not choose this ordeal, humans did.

Let Trevor go quietly to a good home elsewhere in the Yukon (or the South), where he is free to start a new life.

Please, call off the dogs.
