Police are investigating after three puppies were left along an Alberta highway in Frog Lake last week.

On Jan. 14, Elk Point RCMP officers found the three animals abandoned along a rural stretch of Highway 897 “with no houses nearby” in Frog Lake First Nations.

“Police feared for the well-being and the safety of the animals and were brought in to foster care,” RCMP said in a news release Sunday.
