A former supervisor at the Toronto Humane Society is facing charges of animal cruelty after surrendering himself to police Saturday.
Vijay Kumar, accompanied by his lawyer, turned himself into 52 Division. There, he was arrested and charged by OSPCA investigator Kevin Strooband, who is leading the probe of the THS. Launched last June, the investigation has resulted in allegations of animal cruelty against senior management and the shelter’s board of directors.
“Our first priority is the ongoing safety of the animals,” Strooband said in a press release. “We continue to find it necessary to lay charges of this nature because of what we’ve uncovered during the course of this investigation.”
