Sicamous RCMP and BC SPCA investigating case of animal cruelty


2021-07-06 11:13 PDT

On Thursday, July 1, 2021, the Sicamous RCMP responded to a report of animal cruelty where a dead dog was reported found in Shuswap Lake west of the Bruhn Bridge.

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.

The remains of the dog were seized by SPCA investigators who are actively investigating the matter. This is a disturbing discovery as it appears the animal was intentionally made to suffer by drowning. 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.
