Creston RCMP Report: Callers report creepy spiders and howling dogs

In this week’s report, creepy crawlies, dogs howling at the moon, and more

It has been a busy week for the Creston RCMP, and Aug. 30 was a particularly peculiar day.

Then late in the evening, the RCMP received a call about howling dogs. Officers located the dogs and provided some head scratches to help sooth the offending pooches.
