On December 14, Halifax Regional Police attended a residence on Fourth Street in Dartmouth in response to an animal complaint. When officers spoke to the resident, they were told that an unknown dog had entered their home and grabbed their family dog and pulled it back outside where it was killed. Attending officers searched the area for a dog matching the given description and located the dog on a neighbouring street. Once the dog was secured in a police car, Animal Services was contacted and the dog was handed over to the responding investigators. Halifax Regional Police will be cooperating with Animal Services as they continue this investigation moving forward.
