The BC SPCA is appealing to the public for help after the death of three small dogs.

The bodies of a black, male French bulldog, fawn-coloured female pug, and female miniature pincher, were found discarded in a ditch in Prince George, BC on September 16.

Officials with the animal welfare agency say it appears all of the animals died from gunshot wounds to the head.

Their bodies have been sent to forensic pathology to determine more details.

Dr. Teresa Cook, the BC SPCA’s regional manager of cruelty investigations for northern BC, said it appears the dogs appeared to be in good condition and well-cared for, so “it is confusing that they would have been killed in such as disturbing manner.”

Anyone who knows the dogs or has any information is asked to call the BC SPCA’s provincial call centre at 1-855-622-7722.
