New Brunswick Puppies Stolen From Farm Could Die If They're Not Returned, Say RCMP

The dogs are unweaned.

FREDERICTON — Someone has stolen three unweaned puppies from a New Brunswick farm — and RCMP warn the dogs' lives are in danger if they're not returned.

Investigators say it's believed the puppies were taken from their kennels in a barn at Wilson's Farm in Estey's Bridge.

The Mounties are asking for the public's help — they say the puppies have not been weaned and could become extremely sick or die if they are not located and returned.
