Dog allegedly strangled after car stolen in Quebec
A 19-year-old man has been charged for allegedly stealing a vehicle with a dog inside, strangling the dog and leaving it on the side of a Quebec highway.
Quebec provincial police received a call at about 11:45 p.m. Monday about a vehicle stopped on the ramp from Highway 50 to Route 321 just north of Gatineau.
When police arrived, they found a man who was confused and incoherent.
Later, they discovered the vehicle was reported stolen from a convenience store in Repentigny, Que., earlier in the day, with a dog inside. Repentigny is about 35 kilometres northeast of Montreal.
The man then admitted to leaving the dog on the side of Highway 15, police said, but officers have not yet found the dog.
The man was arrested and later released. He could face charges including impaired driving, refusing to take a substance test, vehicle theft and animal cruelty.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 6 in Gatineau.
