Call me daft, but it’s taken until today for me to realize the Tre Smith on the news, who is a Toronto Humane Society officer, is the same Tre from U8TV: The Lofters. I guess I never really got to know Tre that well, and I always expected him to take off into acting, but it’s very cool to see where he’s gone.
Hopefully this mess with his suspension can be cleared up, and he can get back to work. He’s certainly gotten quite a following from Toronto animal lovers. As far as the allegations against him are concerned, I’m not going to speculate on what might have happened on the scene, but the OSPCA and THS should be standing by Tre until they get through all the facts. It feels a bit like they’ve just distanced themselves from his actions more than anything else.
