Police following–up on pet poisonings

November 27, 2013   ·   0 Comments

The Shelburne Police Department is taking allegations of pet poisonings seriously.

In recent weeks, three Shelburne residents have stepped forward, wondering if the untimely death of their cat could have been the result of poisoning.

The police have consulted with local veterinarians who, although concerned, are not aware nor can confirm that this has become an issue for Shelburne.

The University of Guelph Veterinary College has been consulted and police are waiting for autopsy results from a feline sent for postmortem examination. That information is expected in the next few days.

Until then, Shelburne Police Office Paul Neumann says, “Know where your pets are at all times.”

Constable Neumann will share the findings from U of G when they are available.

Any pet owners with concerns should call the Shelburne police at 519-925-3312.
