An animal rescue society in Alberta says a man who reported 15 cats and kittens in plastic storage boxes on the side of an Alberta highway has recanted his story.  


Similarly, dozens of cats, sick or injured were in distress after being recently dropped off at a farm near Kemptville, ON.

Another winter warning: Ontario dogs are at severe risk of flu outbreak.
