MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office seeks the public’s help figuring out how a dog was discovered dead, having been anchored in Point Lake, near Willmar.

Police said the dog was found by a witness, who reported it to authorities just before 9 a.m. Tuesday.

The dog was found floating, but attached to a rope that was attached to an anchor.

The dog, a female Springer Spaniel approximately 5 years old, was found on the north side of the lake.

The Kandiyohi-Meeker County Humane Society were brought in to see if a chip could identify the dog, but no chip was found.

Anyone with information is asked to call the county sheriff at 320-214-6700, at extension 3301.

  1. This won’t be the last time this person commits such a horrible act. If you know something please speak up.

  2. How sad that this dog had to die this way, with all the resources society has at least the dog would have a had a fighting chance! I am sure the poor puppy could have found a home. What kind of MONSTER would do this. It is a sad testament of the HUMAN RACE. WE ALL NEED TO RALLY TO GET STIFFER PENALTIES FOR PEOPLE WHO DO THIS KIND OF THING.
    PLEASE IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING, SPEAK UP AND STOP THE MONSTER! Who knows who’s next!
