Provincial police investigating after 19 dead dogs were found near Quebec City

Quebec provincial police launched an investigation after 19 dead dogs were found by the side of a road near Quebec City.

A citizen called police after finding the decomposing carcasses last week in Cap-Santé, roughly 50 kilometres southwest of the provincial capital. 

A police spokesperson said she didn't know how long the dogs were there before they were found.

She added an investigation was ongoing and that a cause of death had yet to be determined.
