Sickly stock being euthanased at livestock sales event in Vancouver
The animal activists came up with a plan: call the city's animal welfare department for help.
"We felt like we had to act in order to protect the public from cruelty to animals, and the province had just been attacked," said Stephanie Blanchard, a spokeswoman for the Humane Society of B.C. The city immediately issued an order ordering animal exhibitors to immediately clean up, put up fences and put up more screens to protect animals.
Animal rights activists held a rally outside Vancouver's municipal hall and handed out flyers, along with petitions demanding the city take action.
"When you see these things happening, the next logical step for you to do your due diligence is to go out and call the [animal welfare] department," said animal rights activist Linda Giddings, who helped organize the protest.
"They're responsible for all of these animals and people, and they need to be held accountable."

Animal control officers responded and arrested the activists, who were immediately taken back to police headquarters.
"When it came time to take them into custody and put them in the cell, they literally took off their coats and threw them over the wall into the hallway, right behind me and down the wall," Giddings said.
After being booked into police custody, activists were taken away at gunpoint and had the charges dropped.
But the organization behind the rally believes the province cannot afford to turn a blind eye.
"It's just ridiculous when we hear of the slaughter of people. What do they care that it happened? What do they care the fact that I think it's unacceptable?" said animal rights activist Bill Brown, who worked with Giddings.
"This is the most outrage-inducing moment that this country has had," he said. "And the most outrageous things that we've ever seen in Canadian society."

Wild animals dying out
The Vancouver Animal Protection Society, a non-profit organization with more than 35,000 members, is also worried the province's failure to act is costing the community far more than it's worth.
"These people aren't protecting animals. They are harming wildlife in communities that rely on them," said the group's spokeswoman Shannon Grant.
The group also opposes Canada's mandatory euthanasia clause o
