Trial dates for a Lunenburg man charged under the Animal Protection Act of Nova Scotia have been pushed to next June.

Jason Remai, 36, was back in Kentville provincial court Dec. 2.

He stands accused of failing to provide an animal, a dog, with reasonable protection from injurious heat or cold. He was charged after Kings RCMP responded to two calls about a dog in distress July 21 in Wolfville.

The animal, a Portuguese water dog, died at the scene.

Remai’s first court appearance was Sept. 23, followed by Oct. 21, when he entered a plea of not guilty. A trial date was originally set for Feb. 27, 2014.

With the change, Remai is scheduled to be back in Kentville provincial court June 11, 2014. Five days have been set aside for the trial.
