RCMP in St. Pierre-Jolys are investigating a pair of animal abuse cases in the R.M of Hanover.

The first case involves a nine-month-old Labrador puppy named Lemon Lime. Lemon Lime was found roaming near Grunthal and exhibited obvious signs of neglect, including a clean cut across its throat (exposing its trachea) and hundreds of engorged wood ticks.

Lemon Lime was taken to an animal hospital and following an examination by a veterinarian, it could not be confirmed that the cut along the neck was malicious or abusive in nature.

On Wednesday, the puppy was put in the care of D’Arcy’s A.R.C., a Winnipeg-based animal shelter.

Three weeks prior, another dog, a three-month-old Terrier cross named Boo Boo, was found roaming an area near the community of Mitchell and brought to D’Arcy’s A.R.C.

Boo Boo was suffering from a broken hind leg, though it’s not known how or when the injury occurred.

Both dogs will remain at the shelter until their wounds have healed.

RCMP say there is no direct link between the two dogs. Owners have yet to be confirmed.

The investigation continues.
