A woman who operates a dog rescue organization in Canada is wanted by the authorities on charges of animal cruelty for allegedly killing a dog.
According to Thursday's National Post, the suspect, Rita Mueller, allegedly strangled a dog inside of the Toronto, Canada Animal Services facility this past August.
According to CP24.com, the 50-year-old woman was alone in a room with the dog, a Shar Pei named "Henry," at the facility when he was hanged to death by a leash that Mueller had brought with her.
As shelter workers freed the dog from the leash, Mueller walked out of the facility.
The dog's death occurred on Aug. 24.
Mueller operates Scooby’s Dog House and Rescue and officials worry that other animals in her possession might be at risk as well.
Anyone with information on Mueller's whereabouts is asked to contact the police at 416-808-3100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
