A city woman has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after 89 cats were removed from her home 14 months ago, many of them in medical distress.

On April 17, 2016, Calgary Humane Society peace officers inspected the West Hillhurst home and removed all of the Maine coon cats from the residence after determining the severity of the medical and environmental concerns.

Last Friday, Ruth Sogz pleaded guilty to charges under the Animal Protection Act and received a $5,000 fine and a lifetime prohibition from owning all but two cats which have been fixed so they can no longer breed.

Humane Society officials say the fine is one of the toughest penalties under the act handed out to offenders and also applauded the ownership prohibition.

“It is encouraging to see the court apply a lifetime prohibition in this case, given the level and volume of suffering in the home,” said Brad Nichols, senior manager of animal cruelty investigations with the society.

“Not long ago, such a ban was unheard of.”

Nichols said many of the cats had severe respiratory conditions because of the amount of urine and feces that had built up in the home. He said about 60 of the cats had to be put down, while the remaining ones were put up for adoption.

Sogz is required to accept regular welfare checks by society peace officers and to submit annual health reports for the two cats she is allowed to keep.

Mom, son rescued from Bow River by CPS Marine Unit .
Lifejackets likely saved a woman and her 10-year-old son who were rescued clinging to the boom chain on the Bow River Sunday evening. According to the Calgary police, their marine unit discovered an overturned raft on the Bow River around 5:45 p.m. Sunday and nearby they found a mom and her son hanging on to the chain in the Harvie Passage. After several attempts to reach the pair, the mom yelled that she couldn’t hold on any longer. Officers then took immediate action to lodge the boat against the boom and were able to retrieve them. Two other family members had made it safely to shore. Police say the family was trying to get to the shore with their boat when it was overpowered by the winds, pushing them back into the main channel, resulting in the boat hitting and being flipped by the boom. “Had the family not been wearing lifejackets, this would have had a tragic outcome. There is no doubt the lives of this family were saved by wearing properly fitting lifejackets,” said Calgary police Insp. Ryan Ayliffe. “I am also incredibly proud of our Marine Unit members for their quick thinking that lead to the successful rescue of this family.” The Calgary Fire Department helped bring the mom and son to shore and then assisted with towing the CPS boat out of the boom.
