Warrant issued for woman accused of dragging dog down Alberta highway
Melinda Harris, who now lives in B.C., is charged with causing unnecessary suffering to an animal
The woman charged with dragging a dog behind a car on a highway east of Calgary failed to appear in an Alberta court Tuesday morning.
A warrant has been issued for 40-year-old Melinda Harris, who now lives in Mackenzie, B.C.
On July 2, a police officer was stopped by a driver who had seen a dog on a leash being dragged behind a black car. The car, with the injured dog tied to it, was found in a field later that day.
RCMP took the dog, believed to be a border collie cross, to an emergency veterinary clinic, but the animal had to be euthanized.
