Possible cruelty

Suspicious circumstances in Altona.

Cpl. Theresa Figurski of the Altona RCMP detachment said residents have had three dogs show up with strange injuries, and then another resident found two skinned animals near a local highway.

She said officers are not labelling the incidents as possible animal cruelty, but they’re suspicious about the circumstances of the animal’s injuries.

All of the animals were found, or lived, in an area about eight-square kilometres from Altona, she said.

Mounties are saying they’re trying to figure out if the incidents are connected, but they don’t want to be “alarmist.”

“We’re not exactly sure. I can’t say, you know, that it’s cruelty or it’s done deliberately, but it’s certainly enough… we want to find out or investigate more,” she said.
