Suspend License of Veterinarian Accused of Abusing Dogs

Target: Dr. Darrell Dalton, Registrar of the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association, Canada

Goal: Do not allow veterinarian accused of having neglected and hit dogs under his care to continue his practice unless charges are dismissed.

An Edmonton vet currently faces criminal charges alleging that he confined two dogs at his clinic for over nine months inside a tiny kennel with little food or water. The veterinarian, Dr. Jun Yang, allegedly kept the canines as “office dogs,” yet instructed staff not to interact with the animals beyond allowing the dogs to leave their kennel twice a day for five minutes at a time for a bathroom break. Police investigators seized the dogs after employees finally broke their silence. Photographs taken as evidence show that the dogs were malnourished, with their ribs and hipbones clearly visible.

Yang’s staff reported that they felt intimidated by their boss and were reluctant to speak out regarding the mistreatment they witnessed despite knowing what was occurring over many months. One former employee stated that Dr. Yang had punched one of the dogs — a Staffordshire Terrier named Tiggor — in the ribs with a closed fist. During testimony, Dr. Yang’s lawyer stated this was merely a “training method” that the veterinarian employed.

While Dr. Yang’s trial continues, he is still able to practice veterinary medicine at the clinic he owns despite the mounting evidence which shows that he has little concern for the animals under his care. While the legal process must be allowed to continue to hear both sides, the suspicions of mistreatment should warrant a suspension of this veterinarian’s license.

A vet who considers long-term confinement and punching to be an acceptable means of handling or training an animal must not be trusted with the care of beloved family pets. Sign this petition to tell the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association that Dr. Yang must not be allowed to continue his practice unless all charges are eventually cleared.


Dear Dr. Dalton,

An Edmonton vet who has been accused of beating and neglecting two dogs under his care is still practicing at the clinic he owns. Dr. Jun Yang faces serious charges that he confined the dogs in a cramped kennel and denied them access to adequate food or water. He is also accused of having punched one of the dogs as a means of “training.”

While the legal process must be allowed to determine Dr. Yang’s guilt, the photographic evidence showing that the dogs were malnourished and the testimony from the clinic’s staff should warrant a temporary suspension of this vet’s license until these charges can be cleared. Should Dr. Yang be found guilty, his license must be permanently revoked to ensure that no other animals are harmed under his care.

  1. This Asian filthy pussy is diabolical and insane

    Darrell – I think there is enough evidence to prove the guilt of Dr. Yang. His acts against these defensless creatures are nothing short of torture. For the innocent victims of the Animal Kingdom, please do the right thing here and remove this POS from ever having contact with animals. Dr. Yang WILL do this again if allowed to have animals in his care…

    Please do not allow this vet to care for any other animals with no voice!
