Dann Little was fired by Halifax Metro Transit on Friday over the March 14 incident, Andrea Little said.
Little, who jumped out of his bus and used a stick to beat a toy seal being used as a prop by anti-seal hunt protesters as they prepared to take part at an international day of action on Spring Garden Road, thought he’d only be suspended without pay for a month, Little’s wife said.
Little didn’t know why he did what he did, she said, adding “and that’s when I have to say my husband snapped.”
The 55-year-old had been suffering silently. He had been on anti-depressants for two years and was diagnosed recently with a clogged artery in his brain — health issues he never mentioned to Metro Transit, his wife said.
