RCMP confirms they have opened an investigation into reports of mysterious substances in the Cranbrook Community Forest.
Two local veterinary clinics allege pets are getting sick and in some cases dying after visiting the amenity.
The clinics are asking visitors to watch out for anything suspicious such as any animal carcasses or chunks of meat or bone.
Police say they are in the very early stages of their investigation and have no further comment.
The Cranbrook detachment did have samples from the Community Forest tested by experts in the Ministry of Agriculture and Michigan State University late last year but results came back negative.
They said at the time although there was no poison detected in the samples, Veterinarians state that some poisons are hard to detect in toxicology from animals.
The local society that runs the Forest has said before multiple dogs have died due to a foreign substance found in the area.
It’s believed four dogs have passed away in relation to this concern.
One local vet clinic says they will be pursuing postmortem examinations and comprehensive toxicology screens to collect more information.
In a Facebook post, Steeples Veterinarian Clinic says there is still not enough information to establish whether this is accidental or malicious.
