BREAKING NEWS: The Ministry of the Solicitor General has confirmed animal welfare inspectors removed eight dogs from a property in Minden today. A ministry spokesperson said this was "as a result of the owner not complying with orders related to standards of care." Police were previously called to a Minden property Jan. 22 to address an allegation of poor living conditions for 14 hunting dogs chained up outside in dog houses there. Since then, the ministry has said provincial inspectors were working with the property owner to ensure order compliance. The ministry said the eight dogs removed are now being sheltered at the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes in Lindsay. A spokesperson said the ministry could not comment on what happened to the other dogs previously on the property, which is part of an ongoing investigation. The Highlander will provide more information as it is made available.
