Discovery of 19 dead dogs near Quebec City prompts police investigation

Quebec provincial police have opened an investigation after 19 dead dogs were found by the side of a highway near Quebec City. 

A citizen reported seeing the carcasses earlier this week while driving along Highway 358, a spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec said Saturday.  

The SQ could not say how long the dogs had been there. They did not release any further details about the investigation.
