Taipei, March 6 (CNA) An investigation will be launched into the death of two pet dogs, which were suspected to have been thrown from where their owner lives on the ninth floor in Tainan Saturday.
According to the Tainan City Fire Bureau, it received a call Saturday night after bodies of the dogs, which seemed to fall from a high place, were found outside a building.
Policemen went to check residents on the ninth floor of the building, after a man recognized the dogs were the ones adopted by his mother, who lived on the floor.
Police said his 41-year-old mother seemed to have been drinking and lost her temper when she was visited by policemen, and this led to the woman being suspected of throwing the dogs to death.
Lee Chao-chuan (李朝全), head of the Tainan City Animal Health Inspection and Quarantine Institute, said Sunday that his office will work with police to investigate the incident. [FULL STORY]
