During the early morning hours of Dec. 13, Quesnel RCMP received a report of the theft of four dogs from a residence on Matthews Road.

The homeowner called police after returning home to discover that an unknown suspect (s) had entered his residence and stolen four dogs from inside the home.

The owner then utilized social media to spread the word about the missing dogs.

Shortly after 4 a.m., passing motorists discovered one of the dogs, a Boxer, wandering off the Nazko Highway near the Slide Mountain area.

After stopping to retrieve that dog, the motorists followed tracks in the area which lead them to two of the other dogs (both Boxers) which they located deceased but with no obvious signs of trauma. The fourth dog, a Daschund, has not yet been located.

“The death of these animals is tragic,” RCMP Media Relations Officer, Constable Krista VROLYK said.

“We are still in the preliminary stages of this investigation but are committed to identifying the person(s) responsible for this and bringing them to justice.”

Anyone travelling on the Nazko Highway during the early morning hours (between midnight and 4 a.m.) Dec. 13 who observed anything suspicious is urged to call RCMP immediately. Anyone with any information regarding the death of these animals is asked to call 250-992-9211.

Or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.  Crimestoppers pays up to $2,000 in cash rewards for information leading to an arrest or charge. With Crimestoppers you do NOT have to provide your name and you do NOT have to testify in court.
