Tre Smith has his job back and has been reinstated as an animal cruelty investigator for the Toronto Humane Society.
Since August, Smith had been suspended after he saved Cyrus, a rottweiler, from a hot car and handcuffed Cyrus’ owner to the car when he came to the scene.
The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals suspended Smith’s license while they conducted an internal investigation.
This past Saturday OSPCA officials decided to reinstate Smith and allow him to resume his duties, although Smith was cited for misconduct for using handcuffs on Cyrus’ owner.
After hearing the news, Smith said it would take awhile to get back to normal after the long suspension. He added, “This has rattled me to the core of my soul. I had faith in the system and that has been deeply shaken.”
But in regards to his job, Smith said that he still loves his job and is excited to be back fighting crime against animals.
