Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are investigating two incidents of possible dog poisonings, just outside of Mallorytown.
Officers say they were called to a home Thursday, January 7, after a resident walking their dog claimed they found meatballs along the roadway, with a white powder in the meat.
Then, two days later, officers were alerted to a sick puppy in the same area that was taken to the vet after becoming ill. Police say it's also not known if these two incidents are connected.
