Alberta woman loaded after trying to email puppies and kitten

A 53-year-old Alberta woman has been charged according to the Animal Welfare Act after Vulcan County Enforcement Services (VCES) claimed she was trying to email dogs and a cat last month.

In a press release issued on Wednesday, the county claimed that on May 7, Jill Marshall attempted to email a puppy and a kitten by placing them in a small cardboard box and leaving them at the Canada Post office in Milo, Alta.

The county also claimed that Marshall did it again on May 17. In this case, the county considered that she was trying to email a puppy.

Marshall was charged with two bills to get an animal in distress, VCES said.

Her first legal appearance is set for July 30 in Lethbridge.

The incidents are under investigation and evidence is still gathering, said peace officer Sgt. Rob Pintkowski.

Pintkowski explained that Marshall has no previous animal-related beliefs, but the authorities have previously treated her about animals.

In an e-mail to Global News, Canada Post said: "We are aware of this issue and work with authorities. As this issue is before the courts, it is inappropriate to comment further."

Global News reached the RCMP but they have not yet responded.
