The BC SPCA is asking the public for any information about who may have shot and killed three small adult dogs and left their deceased bodies in a ditch. The animals were found on Sept. 16 near the intersection of Damms Road and Willow Cale Road in Prince George.
BC SPCA officers recovered the bodies of a black, male French bulldog, a fawn-coloured female pug and a black and tan female miniature pincher. All three animals appear to have died from gunshot wounds to the head. The SPCA has sent the bodies for forensic pathology to determine more details.
“The dogs appeared to be in good condition and well-cared for, so it is confusing that they would have been killed in such a disturbing manner,” says Dr. Teresa Cook, the BC SPCA’s regional manager of cruelty investigations for northern B.C. “We urge anyone who many know these dogs, or who has any information about the incident to please call the BC SPCA’s provincial call centre at 1-855-622-7722.”
