Northum­ber­land OPP of­fi­cers were called Wed­nes­day to a home on Old Wooler Road af­ter re­ceiv­ing a re­port about the sus­pi­cious death of a fam­ily pet.

Robert Simp­son said Friday. “We are def­i­nitely ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic to come for­ward with any in­for­ma­tion that they may have with re­spect to the in­ci­dent.” He said while the in­for­ma­tion that can be re­leased by po­lice is cur­rently lim­ited by the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, po­lice hope to re­lease more de­tails as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion pro­ceeds. Po­lice are ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call the OPP com­mu­ni­ca­tions cen­tre at 1888-310-1122 or Crime Stop­pers anony­mously at 1-800-2228477, or on­line at stopcrime­here.ca.
