The Bacolod City Police Office is probing reports of dogs being poisoned so robbers can burglarize houses.

The BACH Project PH, a non-profit organization on animal welfare, posted on their Facebook page Sunday that five dogs in Taculing, five dogs in Fortune Town, and four dogs near the Bacolod Government Center were poisoned.
