Six hunting dogs were found dead by their owner in Melini, Larnaca, on Wednesday, police said.
Police were informed of the incident on Thursday afternoon. Officers visited the scene and spoke to the owner who confirmed finding six of his seven dogs dead. The surviving animal was taken to a vet for treatment.
The man said he did not know police had been informed of the incident. The matter was reported by his sister.
The owner said he buried the dogs immediately and did not wish for them to be exhumed so that a necropsy could be carried out to determine the cause of death.
He said he did not suspect anyone who would want to harm his animals.
