MERRITT - A local animal shelter is asking for your help in finding the person responsible for the gruesome killing of a dog near Merritt.
Angel's Animal Rescue, located in Merritt, says on its Facebook page that a dog had its muzzle wrapped with barbed wire and was hanged at the Coldwater Reserve.

Judanna Dawn, caretaker at Angel's Animal Rescue, says she hopes something good will come out of this tragic situation.
