Centerplate CEO caught kicking puppy in Vancouver elevator resigns


Video footage sent to the B.C. SPCA shows a man kicking and yanking on the leash of a Doberman puppy. The SPCA’s court documents identified the man as Desmond Hague.


VANCOUVER - The CEO of the company that provides the food at BC Place has resigned following an incident in which he was caught on camera kicking a puppy in a downtown Vancouver elevator.


Centerplate’s board of directors announced Tuesday that CEO Desmond Hague resigned from the company and has been replaced by acting president and CEO Chris Verros.


“We want to reiterate that we do not condone nor would we ever overlook the abuse of animals,” Joe O’Donnell, chairman of the board of directors for Connecticut-based Centerplate, said in a statement Tuesday. “Following an extended review of the incident involving Mr. Hague, I’d like to apologize for the distress that this situation has caused so many; but also thank our employees, clients and guests who expressed their feelings about this incident. Their voices helped us to frame our deliberations during this very unusual and unfortunate set of circumstances."


The resignation comes after Hague last week donated $100,000 toward the establishment of the Sade Foundation in honour of the dog he mistreated that was to go toward the protection and safety of animals in Vancouver.



Hague released a statement last week saying he was ashamed and embarrassed about the incident, which he attributed to losing control after a “minor frustration” with a friend’s pet.


The SPCA has recommended animal cruelty charges.

I guess money couldn't buy his way out of this one.

Sadistic sociopath..........loosely translated as

BIG TIME AR$EHOLE

The scary thing is how many people are actually sociopaths.......4%, one in 25, with absolutely no conscience or any understanding of right and wrong, nor any sense of empathy.......

Dangerous people, almost always smart enough to avoid blatant criminality..........and manipulative enough to wind up as managers and leaders in numbers disproportionate to their actual population.

Scary.

Scary.

Cameras, cameras everywhere. It's getting harder and harder for them to hide their 'arseholeness' from the world.

If they are a lawyer, it doesn't really matter. Everybody knows they kick puppies and eat kittens cameras or not.

We tolerate the existence of lawyers as a necessary evil in society. Puppy kickers however, they're going down!
