With Little Grand Rapids reeling after Donnelly Eaglestick’s death, there’s division over what to do with pack
The mauling death of a Little Grand Rapids woman has Manitoba Grand Chief Derek Nepinak and a veterinarian who has worked with First Nations calling for a dog cull on the First Nation, but a rescue group says the situation never should have reached that point.
Donnelly Rose Eaglestick, 24, was found dead Saturday morning at a construction site for the community’s new water treatment plant.
“I’m really sad to hear that these things continue to happen in our communities. This is not the first time that the Canadian public has heard of a tragedy like this unfolding in our communities, where stray dogs attack a human being and take a life,” said Nepinak, grand chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs.
