50 dogs rescued from meat farm doing well

MONTREAL—The 50 terrified dogs and puppies rescued from crammed cages on a South Korean dog meat farm are well on their way to becoming pets in Canada, Humane Society International said.

The dogs, which include terrier crosses, Jindo mixes, and Labrador mixes, were recovered with the help of animal advocates in Korea and transported to a Montreal emergency shelter last week.

Wrong people were on trial, families say

MONTREAL—A Quebec man whose kid sister was one of 47 people killed in the Lac-Megantic tragedy says the three men acquitted Friday never should have been put on trial.

Woman has more surgery

MONTREAL—A young Quebec woman whose arms and legs were amputated following a car crash on Christmas Day underwent further surgery this week to remove more of her right leg, her sister said today.

Samantha Mongeon said it was her sibling Sabryna's sixth amputation and ninth surgery since she was electrocuted following the December car crash.

Vast caves discovered under city

MONTREAL—Only 10 metres below the streets and parks of a residential Montreal neighbourhood there lies a network of ice age caverns that no human had ever seen until a few weeks ago.

The 15,000-year-old caves were discovered in October by a pair of amateur explorers who drilled and hammered through the ancient limestone walls of an existing cave to reveal the vast chamber beyond.
