OTTER LAKE May 22, 2018
An investigation is underway to determine how a dog was found in rough shape near a rocky shoreline in Otter Lake.
According to a representative from the Gatineau SPCA, they got a call on May 23 about the dog being found tied to a cinderblock with only about two feet of slack.
It’s unclear how long the dog was there.
The incident went viral when pictures of the dog tied to the concrete block were shared on social media.
The person who made the post, who wants to remain anonymous, said that the dog was brought home and eventually tracked down by the owners.
Instead of simply handing the dog over to the owners, the police and SPCA were called and, when the SPCA arrived, the dog was returned to the owners.
