Aurora  - Images that appeared on a Yonge Street building in recent weeks made residents sick to their stomachs.

 

Aurora’s Abbotsford Animal Hospital was the target of antisemitic vandalism.

 

The vet office was littered with several Nazi symbols and antisemitic graffiti.

 

Last week, rocks were thrown through windows at the clinic.

 

“I never experienced something like this,” veterinarian Jory Bocknek, who is Jewish, said.

 

“The first thing I thought was I didn’t want my kids to see it. I’m very disappointed.”
