The owners of a farm in Quebec's Eastern Townships have vanished as police investigate 40 emaciated dogs and horses found in horrible conditions.

Three other animals on the farm two hours northeast of Montreal had to be put down.

The saved animals included two dogs with injuries to their faces and legs that suggest they might be survivors of a larger group of starving dogs that turned on each other, local animal protection official Marie-Josee Roy said.
