RCMP are on the hunt for two dangerous dogs that were either stolen or released from the SPCA in Coombs on Vancouver Island. The kennel was broken into overnight on March 18 and the dogs — a shepherd cross and a black lab cross — were taken, said Sgt. Brian Hunter.

“The two dogs ... named Chloe and Zakk … were seized by the Regional District of Nanaimo (in January) pursuant to a dangerous dog investigation,” he said.
