A woman whose dog was struck by a truck last Wednesday believes the driver hit her Pomeranian on purpose, say police.

She was parked on Second Avenue in front of Latitude Wireless when she walked to the driver’s side with her dog following behind her.

She was about to pick up the dog, named Baby, when a red four-door SUV appeared to swerve in front of the dog and struck it.

The woman quickly picked up her injured pup and drove to the veterinarian where the dog was euthanized.

There are still no witnesses to corroborate the woman’s story, but police continue to investigate, said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Don Rogers.

The truck’s occupants are males in their early 20s and were wearing ballcaps, according to the woman.

Anyone with information that would lead to an arrest could receive a cash reward and are advised to call police.
