Saskatchewan, Canada

The following excerpt is from Rex v. England, 1924 CanLII 137 (SK CA):

As Wills, J., said, in Miles v. Hutchings [1903] 2 K.B. 714, 72 L.J.K.B. 775, at p. 776: I do not think that it is enough that the act should be done under the impression, right or wrong, that it is necessary for the protection of property, if the man knows that something else can be done which will be effectual for the protection of the property without doing injury to the animal.
