Animal cruelty investigators in Dawson Creek, B.C. were left reeling after a local resident found a dog frozen in a block of ice on his lawn.
According to the B.C. SPCA, the homeowner who made the gruesome discovery Jan. 15 did not know the dog or who could have left the corpse on his property.
“It’s a bizarre and very upsetting case,” said SPCA investigator Marcie Moriarty. “Inside the block of ice, which looks to have been made from a larger rubber bin, was the frozen corpse of a medium-size black dog.”
Efforts are being made to determine the dog’s cause of death and to find its owner.
Anyone with information is asked tp call the South Peace SPCA branch at 250-782-2444.
