HARTFORD, Vt. (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a dog found along the White River in the Vermont town of Hartford.
Hartford police said Wednesday that it appears that the Labrador retriever-pit bull mix was purposely strangled. Authorities also say the dog had trauma to the back of its neck.
The neutered 2-year-old tan dog was found down an embankment off Old River Road.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hartford Community Services Officer Brandon Dyke.
