Sicamous RCMP, SPCA investigating disturbing animal cruelty

July 06, 2021 - 11:43 AM

Sicamous RCMP are investigating a disturbing case of animal cruelty after a dog was found dead in Shuswap Lake.

"The large breed dog was found near the shore and tied to an anchoring device which prevented the animal from reaching shore or touching bottom. There was another line tied to a nearby pole on the shore," Sgt. Murray McNeil said in a release. 

The dog was found west of the Bruhn Bridge.

The BC SPCA has custody of the dog and are investigating.

This is a disturbing discovery as it appears the animal was intentionally made to suffer by drowning, RCMP said.

Anyone with information as to the identity of the animal or the person responsible is asked to contact the BC SPCA or the Sicamous RCMP at 250-836-2878.
