File # 2020-8747

On December 20, 2020, at 3:30 pm, police were called to a rural residence in Halfmoon Bay after a domestic dog was shot by a neighbour with a shotgun.

Police spoke to the neighbour, who said he thought the dog was a coyote going after his chickens.  Luna, the nine month old Husky, was rushed to the veterinarian but died from her injuries.  Police are continuing to investigate and will work with their partners at BC Conservation Service and the SPCA.
