Newborn animals abandoned in Richmond hotel parking lot

Dead animals in parking lot

Newborn animals found abandoned in the parkade of a Richmond hotel may not be puppies.

Richmond-based Regional Animal Protection Society was called in by RCMP after a number of “dead puppies” were found Saturday afternoon in the parkade of the Hilton Vancouver Airport on Minoru Boulevard.

The tiny creatures were put in a box and taken to the RCMP.

RAPS CEO Eyal Lichtmann says it is yet to be determined what species the animals are.

“It’s inconclusive if they’re puppies. They were tiny,” said Lichtmann, adding that they can’t get to the box until Wednesday, as it’s locked up in a freezer at the RCMP office and the investigating officer won’t return until then.

The offspring of raccoons, for example, could be mistaken for puppies.
