Police respond to allegations of neglected dogs

Police were called to a residence in Minden Hills on Jan. 22 to investigate potential animal cruelty.

According to information provided by the Haliburton Highlands OPP the allegations were of “ill treatment and poor living conditions for 14 hunting dogs” on the property which is on County Road 121.

“OPP investigators have engaged animal welfare inspectors appointed by provincial animal welfare services who are currently working directly with the family to improve the health and well-being of animals at the residence” police said.

An OPP liaison team was called on to be the go-between with community members who are advocating on behalf of the animals.
The investigation is ongoing.
