Two dogs have been taken during the second break-in to occur at the Revelstoke Animal Shelter this week.

Cpl. Thomas Blakney of the Revelstoke RCMP said the two dogs, along with the dog taken in Monday’s break-in were involved in a vicious attack on a local resident on April 21, 2017

“As a result these dogs were seized by animal control and held as they were deemed dangerous and a risk to members of the public,” said Blakney.
