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. 

The Leeds OPP say they are aware of extensive discussions on social media regarding these incidents. Anyone with information should contact the Leeds OPP at 1-888-310-1122. Those who wish to remain anonymous are asked to visit Crime Stoppers at
