Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!
The SPCA is investigating what a spokeswoman described as a "heartbreaking" discovery Monday - a dog hanging dead from a tree in woods outside Halifax.
A man checking fencing around the Pockwock watershed in Upper Hammond Plains made the disturbing discovery.
''We think somebody took the dog out there and tied it up to the tree quite high,'' said Judith Gass, past president of the Nova Scotia SPCA and the agency's head of investigations.
''It looked like the hind legs would have been on the ground but the front legs not quite. It would have choked itself to death trying to get free.
''What a lonely, miserable way to die.''
Gass said the beige and white, unneutered male dog appeared to be an American Staffordshire terrier mix. She said it was no more than two or three years old.
The SPCA released photos of the dog in hopes that someone might recognize the animal or its red collar.
