Family Dog Shot Dead

It's something you never want to discover when you come home from work.

RCMP and the New Brunswick SPCA are investigating the fatal shooting of a family pet on Synton Lane in Colpitts Settlement.

The German Shepherd and Labrador mix dog was found lying lifeless on the grass by the owners late yesterday afternoon when they arrived home from work. The dog was last seen alive by his owners when they left for work on Monday morning.

RCMP believe the dog was shot sometime on Monday during the day while the owners were away. An autopsy is expected to be performed to determine the cause of death.

 Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact District 11 RCMP at 387-2222 or Crime Stoppers or 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
