The Justice Ministry in B.C. has issued an unusual public warning about a female, high-risk, violent offender who's been released from jail.
The ministry's corrections branch says 23-year-old Kayla Bourque has an escalating criminal history and plans to live in Vancouver.
Bourque has been convicted of killing animals, causing unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to animals and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
The branch says Bourque has also offended violently against people, is being closely monitored by authorities and has 46 court-ordered conditions she must follow.
The woman who studied criminology at Simon Fraser University has a curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and isn't allowed to access social networking sites.
Bourque is also forbidden from possessing any weapons, including knives or other bladed instruments, except to prepare food, and stay away from people under age 18.
