SPCA, Fire crew and RCMP try to get a horse out of a ditch after the owner tried to tow his car with the animal. Charges are being laid and five other emaciated horses were seized. Two died, the owner who turned out to be a vet.
John picked up two bronze awards for Spot News and Sports at the BCYNA awards banquet in March 2009.
The news award was for a shot of a horse being rescued from a ditch while the sport picture captured the winning goal of Trinity Western University women's team winning the national championships.
