PENTICTON - The mystery of the missing Myster is a mystery no more.

Myster, the one-year-old cane corso-whippet mix, was recovered and returned to the SPCA today, Dec. 8, South Okanagan B.C. SPCA Branch Manager Carolyn Hawkins says.

Hawkins says the dog has been taken to an undisclosed location and will be transferred to a new location immediately.

Staff and volunteers at the South Okanagan branch of the B.C. SPCA were dismayed when they arrived at work on Nov. 12 to find a fence and kennel enclosure cut open, and the dog missing.

Myster had originally been surrendered to the SPCA, and Hawkins believed the theft was targeted.
