Iqaluit police still looking for info on July dog death

Sled dog was found hanged along Iqaluit’s sealift off-loading area on July 31

By Nunatsiaq News

Iqaluit police are once again appealing to the public to come forward with information about the vicious death of a sled dog in the city last summer.

Early July 31, sled dog team owner Izaac Wilman discovered one of his huskies dead and strung up against a wooden post in a sea can along the community’s sealift off-loading area.

Wilman had secured the six-month-old puppy with the rest of his dog team near the creek the previous evening.

Iqaluit RCMP have been investigating the incident over the last five months.

Anyone with information can call the RCMP at 867-979-1111 or to report information anonymously, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

    If they figure out who did it, maybe give him a taste of their own medicine. Eye for an eye.
