VANCOUVER - Charges have been laid against a dog walker from Langley, B.C. in connection with the deaths of six dogs.

The B.C. SPCA says Emma Paulsen is facing six charges, five of which are animal cruelty-related while the sixth is one of public mischief.

The animals were reported stolen from Paulsen's truck while it was parked at a dog park in May, and a massive search was launched by their owners and the community.

The dogs were later found dead in a Fraser Valley ditch.

Langley RCMP did not comment on the charges instead referred questions to the SPCA.

Last May police said they believed the dogs died in the back of a vehicle on what was a hot day.

The SPCA said it didn't know when Paulsen would appear in court to face the allegations against her.
