Fish and birds die in Quebec pet shop because of low temperatures

April 06, 2018 - 8:33 AM

MAGOG, Que. - About 30 animals, including fish and birds, have died in a pet shop about 120 kilometres east of Montreal because of low temperatures.

The co-owner of Animalerie Orford, Fanny Richard, says the cold was attributable to work that was being done at a shopping centre where her store is located.

A burst water pipe also caused the heating system to fail in certain places and the temperature fell by as much as 10 C overnight Wednesday night.

The other co-owner, Andre Beaulieu, fears other animals may die in the next few days.
