Reward offered after dog, puppies shot in head with nail gun

MONTREAL — A case of animal cruelty near the rural town of Lac-Brome, Que., has inspired an outpouring of sympathy, with rewards offered for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for abandoning an injured dog and her brood of puppies.

According to the Sherbrooke Record newspaper, the female black Labrador retriever was found Dec. 22 on the side of a country road in the town, about 100 kilometres east of Montreal, with her seven pups stuffed into a bag nearby. The dog and several of the puppies had reportedly been shot in the head with a nail gun. Two of the puppies died from their injuries.

Two families in the area have offered rewards of $100 each for information that could help the police locate the perpetrators, the paper said. The adult dog, which survived her injuries and was being cared for at the local SPCA, has been adopted. Her surviving puppies will also be heading for new homes this week.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the SPCA in Granby, Que., at 450-378-6006. Information can also be passed on to the Surete du Quebec, the provincial police force, at 1-800-659-4264.
