MARLBANK, Ont. – Provincial police say two dogs have been shot at homes near Marlbank, Ont.

Investigators say officers were called to a home on Feb. 15 after a man discovered that his dog had been shot twice in the rear hip area.

The dog, a male yellow Labrador retriever, was taken to a veterinarian and had to be euthanized.

Two days later, another resident of the same street told police that her three-year-old black Labrador had to be euthanized after apparently being shot in the head on Jan. 29.

Anyone with information on who may be responsible for shooting the dogs is asked to contact Napanee OPP.
