Quebec provincial police are investigating after 19 dead dogs were found by the side of a road near Quebec City.
A citizen called police after finding the decomposing carcasses last week in Cap-Sante, about 50 kilometres southwest of the provincial capital.
Police spokeswoman Helene Nepton says she don't know how long the dogs were there before they were found.
She says an investigation is ongoing and it's too soon to say what caused the animals' deaths.
