Whitehorse RCMP are on the lookout for suspects after a daring prison break late Wednesday evening.
The escapee has grey-and-white fluffy, curly hair and is said to resemble the famous Hollywood canine Benji.
The loose dog, a spaniel mix, had been nabbed on Hanna Crescent in Whitehorse’s Kwanlin Dun village on Tuesday.
At 1:08 a.m. Wednesday, police responded to a security alarm at the Whitehorse Animal Shelter on Quartz Road.
They discovered someone had cut through the fence and broken the lock on a back door of the shelter.
Once inside, suspects stole a computer tower and the Benji-like dog found earlier in the day.
A fastfood trailer near the animal shelter was also broken into, but so far nothing has been reported stolen. CO
