The embattled CEO of Centreplate has resigned, amid the controversy over him kicking and choking a Doberman puppy in a Yaletown elevator several weeks ago.
Des Hague is being replaced by Chris Verros as acting President and CEO.
After the video of Hague went public, he and the company apologized, and he promised to donate 100-thousand dollars and do 1000 hours of community work for animal welfare.
However, an online petition calling for his ouster reached 180-thousand names.
Centreplate provides catering services for places like BC Place Stadium and the MTS Centre which is home to the Winnipeg Jets.
