Woman murders dog during divorce

A British Columbia woman who teaches arts and crafts, puppetry, heritage hat making and other classes to children in Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Langley, Surrey, Vancouver, Whistler and other areas took an innocent family pet to a local vet and had it killed during a lengthy divorce.

The Rottweiler/German Shepard cross was killed during the time of the divorce proceedings when the woman refused to comply with multiple court orders to turn over financial records of the large amount of money she had removed from their joint account prior to filing for divorce..

The dog was just a few years old, hardly more than a youngster, and was adopted from a local dog pound by the now ex-husband. The woman, Liz Summerfield, had removed his dog from the family home and refused to disclose where she had taken the animal.

The actions of a woman who takes an innocent animal and hides it from its owner then lies and has it killed say something about the person.

As does the fact during the weeks of extensive questioning about the money she had removed prior to filing for divorce, Liz Summerfield refused to comply with multiple court orders to disclose what she had done with the vast amount of money missing.

Lying, refusing to comply with court orders, psychological abuse of not disclosing whereabouts of dog she stole,  these all help paint a picture of the dog killer.

Liz Summerfield took the family dog from where she had hidden it to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital and lied to the staff about the dog biting a post office person, saying she had been ordered by the post office to have the dog put down.

The post office never filed a complaint against the family pet, the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital never checked with the post office to see if there was such an order, and the Hospital never checked with the registered owner of the family pet, the husband, who had been taking his dog to that Hospital since adopting him.

Liz Summerfield simply lied in order to have a family pet killed.

Liz teaches children in the lower mainland of BC. Parents should be aware of who is teaching their children.

Special place in hell for those who harm children and animals

Yet another dog killer and liar.

Special place in hell for those who harm children and animals

A dog walker tells police she had left the six missing dogs in the back of her pickup truck with a canopy in the 4400-block of 206 Street, Langley, BC, saying she put the animals there so she could use the washroom for about 10 minutes.

An outpouring of sympathy and rage flood the media. Where are the dogs? Who took them? Why were they taken? Searches are formed, emotional owners of the missing dogs plea for answers for two days on TV and in print, social media in a frenzy.

But the story of the missing dogs was a lie. The dog walker has allegedly told a pet detective she found the six dogs dead in the back of her truck and proceeded to dispose of their bodies in a ditch.

The death of these dogs was probably an accident. The dog walker left the animals in the back of a truck with a canopy and the dogs probably died of heat exhaustion. A necropsy is being performed.

But this dog walker probably didn’t intentionally kill the dogs, unlike this woman pictured below.

This woman took another persons dog to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital and told an out and out lie in order to have the dog killed.

The South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital didn’t bother to check with the actual owner of the dog, the one who had paid for the Rottweiler/German Shepard cross at the local dog pound and was the registered own and who paid for the various hospital visits and treatments for that dog and other animals he cared for at the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital.

The South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital didn’t check with the local post office to see if an order to put the dog down had actually been issued.

The South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital simply took the word of the woman shown above – who had secretly removed the dog from the family house before the divorce and refused multiple requests for information on where the animal was – and upon receipt of payment from the dog-napper carried out the killing of an innocent animal.

Why did this woman purposely kill an innocent animal? Events suggest it was for a very large sum of money. She was going through a divorce and had refused to comply with numerous court orders to turn over financial records concerning a very large sum of money she removed from a joint bank account shortly before filing for divorce.

It was while the courts were hounding her for the missing money she had her husbands’ dog killed by the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital. Killing her husbands’ pet was a deliberate act by her. The reason for her action I leave to you.

The dog walker probably didn’t set out to kill the six dogs, but should be punished. The woman who took another person’s pet and had him killed went unpunished.

The woman teaches children in the lower mainland of British Columbia, teaching them arts and crafts, puppetry, heritage hat making and other lessons through events and classes at local communities and local libraries.

Her name is Liz Summerfield, and here is the link to the letter my lawyer prepared for me to send to the BCSPCA regarding the death of my beloved Punzhu.

Parents should be aware of who is teaching their children. Some organizations like the Place des Arts don’t always list who the instructor is, perhaps for a feeling of protecting the public by not publishing who is actually teaching young children or some other reason.

Parents should verify the character of anyone teaching or coming into contact with their children. A quick search on the Internet will often turn up information. If an organization like the Place des Arts doesn’t list who is teaching your child or children then phone and find out who will be in contact with your child or children.

Who knows, your child could come in contact with a dog killer.

Festival of light celebrated with invitation to dog killer

Liz may be welcomed to teach children by various community centers in BC, invited to attend festivals and art camps to teach children, and parents may well want her to teach their children, moreover, even readers of this post may see nothing wrong with a woman who lies and kills an innocent animal teaching their children. I just feel that, as a public service to parents, they have the right to know something about the people who are teaching their children, and I suggest parents Google the names of anyone teaching or instructing their children as a precaution.

Special place in hell for those who harm children and animals

Some festivals or community centers offering activities for children don’t show who is teaching their children. Vancouver, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Haney, Maple Ridge, New Westminster, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey, Langley, Whistler and other areas often hold activities for children during the year. As a precaution, parents should phone and ask who the instructor is and then check the Internet for any information which could be of interest to a parent.

Just last year B.C. Corrections issued a public notification after a pet-killer, described by a judge as a “psychopathic and narcissistic … sexual sadist,” was released from jail with plans to live in Vancouver.

The City of Vancouver hired a Hells Angel without too much – if any – background check. Would you want your child taught by someone without a background check of any kind?

Here is the link to the letter my lawyer wrote after she checked the facts about Liz Summerfield killing my dog during our divorce, during the time she refused numerous court orders to turn over bank records of what she had done with all the money she removed from our joint accounts.

Parents, a warning about another BC dog killer possibly teaching your children

Special place in hell for those who harm children and animals

According to the Vancouver Sun, B.C. Corrections has issued a public notification after a pet-killer, described by a judge as a “psychopathic and narcissistic … sexual sadist,” was released from jail with plans to live in Vancouver.

Kayla Bourque, 23, has “offended violently against both people and animals and is considered high risk to re-offend,” according to the notification by the Ministry of Justice, but Kayla isn’t the only dog killer roaming the streets of the lower mainland.

There is another dog killer, and she could be teaching your children at any of the local art councils events, library events, festivals, art camps, or schools in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Vancouver, Maple Ridge, Port Moody, Surrey, Langley, North or West Vancouver, or perhaps Whistler.

Did you enroll, or are thinking of enrolling, your child in a puppet making or puppetry class, papier mache, lantern making, or other arts related event at Place des Arts in Coquitlam, Surrey, Burnaby, New Westminster, or other lower mainland locale?

How do you do if your child is being taught by a dog killer or other person whose values you may question? Some municipal districts or art-related public institutions hide who is instructing your child; they don’t list who the instructor is, or, as Place des Arts in Coquitlam does, lists an instructor as TBA or TBD.

Parents should make every effort to protect their children from coming into contact with questionable instructors by finding out who is teaching their children before enrolling their child.

Phone the people hosting the event and ask the name of the instructor, and then check that name on the Internet.

The B.C. Ministry of Justice issued a warning about Kayla Bourque, and now I’m warning you about another dog killer.

This other killer of an innocent animal simply lied to a veterinarian during a time the courts were hounding her to disclose what she had done with a very large sum of money she had taken from the joint bank account prior to filing for divorce.

This other dog killer simply told the vet the post office ordered her to put the dog down because it had bit a mailman. This was the lie. No one at the post office ordered the dog put down, and the veterinarian clinic, The South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital,  never asked for any written confirmation of order. They simply accepted the lie without question.

The name of the other dog killer teaching children in the lower mainland of BC is Liz Summerfield, who may use her maiden name Liz Gray as lawyers’ letter to BCSPCA indicates, and I urge parents to confirm who is teaching their child or children whenever the instructor is listed as TBA or TBD or not listed at all.

Warning letter sent to BCSPCA by lawyer.

BCSPCA warned of dog killer.

Updated April 4, 2012.

If you love animals or care about cruelty to animals then please consider joining supporting your local SPCA or other animal rights organization.

My heart almost stopped when my son told me that his mother, Liz Summerfield, had taken my dog Punzhu to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital to be killed. Liz had told the veterinary clinic that Punzhu had bitten a postman and she’d been ordered to have Punzhu put down. This turned out to be a lie.

I checked with the post office and found out that Punzhu was with Liz outside her mother’s house when the postman approached. According to the postman and the post office, the postman did not file a complaint nor did the post office order Liz to destroy Punzhu.

I was very upset that the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital killed my dog without any written documentation from the Post Office. They killed my dog on the verbal advice of my now former wife, who simply lied to them.

Below is part of a letter, which was mailed to SPCA branches in the lower mainland, prepared by my lawyer after checking the facts.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

About four years ago I adopted a dog from the Animal Control Pound in New Westminster.

In October of 1995, my ex-wife, Elizabeth Summerfield, separated from me and left the family home, taking my dog with her. I asked my ex-wife where the dog was but she refused to tell me. I learned at the end of November, 1995, that she had had the dog euthanized at South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital on November 16, 1995.

I hope that you will not consider Elizabeth Summerfield (who may revert to her maiden name of Elizabeth Gray) as a potential adopter of animals from the SPCA in future.

Yours truly,

Ted Summerfield

Years ago I started making puzzles and called them Punzhu Puzzles after my dog, who died so very young and so needlessly. It is my hope the SPCA will remember the letter I mailed and not consider Liz Summerfield, aka Elizabeth Summerfield or Elizabeth Gray, as a potential adopter of animals in the future.

It was during our divorce Liz lied to the South Burnaby Veterinary Clinic in order to have my dog killed. Liz had my dog killed during the time she had refused several court orders to provide information on what she had done with the large sum of money she had removed from our joint bank accounts.

Fearing for the safety of my son, and what she might do to the other dogs and cats she had taken from our home, I immediately settled the divorce.

Liz works with children as an arts instructor at various lower mainland cities & towns, including Whister, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Richmond, Port Moody, Maple Ridge, Vancouver, Surrey, Langley, and other areas.

Liz teaches puppetry, lantern making, papier mache, masks, as well as instructing children in a variety of other arts related studies at festivals, public events, and community centers.

Parents should be aware of who is instructing their precious children.
