Edith Manseau, the woman in the middle of a dogfight with the Comox Valley Regional District passed away Monday, according to reports posted online.

Chum and Champ, the two Newfoundland dogs belonging to Black Creek resident Manseau and her husband Jacques, were being held at the Comox Valley SPCA following seizure spurred from a Jan. 5 complaint of a vicious dog attack.

Last week, the dogs were released to the couple temporarily as per an agreement with the CVRD due to a delay in a decision after the conclusion of a hearing for an application to destroy the dogs, brought forth by the Comox Valley Regional District.

Manseau was not with her husband last Thursday at the SPCA to pick up the Newfoundlands, as Jacques indicated she wasn’t feeling well.

Irene Foley, a friend of the Manseaus, and Facebook administrator for the Chum and Champ v.s. CVRD group, posted to the page that Edith passed away Monday at 3:45 a.m. at St. Joseph’s General Hospital with Jacques at her side.

The Animal Advocacy Project, a blog written by Patricia Miles, posted Saturday that Edith was rushed to the emergency room Wednesday night.

Calls to the family were not returned by Record deadline.
