27 an­i­mal car­casses were not dogs, po­lice say

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Que­bec pro­vin­cial po­lice said Tues­day that the rot­ting an­i­mal car­casses found on the out­skirts of a town near Que­bec City were not dogs, but coy­otes, fish­ers, ducks and rac­coons. Po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing after ci­ti­zens dis­cov­ered up to 27 dead an­i­mals on the side of a road in Cap-Sante, about 50 kilo­me­tres south­west of the pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal. Ci­ti­zens feared they were dead dogs, but po­lice called in wildlife de­part­ment em­ploy­ees who con­firmed they were not. “The in­ves­ti­ga­tion on our end is there­fore over,” po­lice spokesper­son Chris­tine Coulombe said in a news re­lease. Po­lice said the car­casses had been ly­ing in the area for at least six months.
