Admitted sled dog killer Robert Fawcett was a no-show at court in North Vancouver this morning.
But protestors were certainly making their voice heard.
The date was set for an arraignment hearing, but even that didn't happen, with crown and defence both requesting more time to review more than 2-thousand pages of evidence.
Outside, Marley Daviduk with the "Vancouver Animal Defence League" was among those holding placards.
"Obviously Bob Fawcett is a deranged violent individual... if he gets off with a $200 fine and a slap on the wrist, which is what a lot of people get for abusing animals in Canada, and then he goes off and attacks a human being, we're all going to be really sorry that he's not in jail."
Fawcett is charged with a count of causing unnecessary pain or suffering to an animal.
Proceedings will resume August 16th.
