Kelowna SUV Driver Runs Over Dog, Refuses To Help: RCMP

KELOWNA, B.C. - Mounties in Kelowna, B.C., have picked up the case of a heartless SUV driver and a grieving pet owner.

Police in the Okanagan city are searching for the driver after an incident on Feb. 28, when the man backed out of a parking stall and ran over a leashed dog, being walked by its owner.

While it was apparent the dog's injuries were very serious, the man wouldn't agree to transport the bleeding animal in his expensive SUV.

He also refused to give the distraught owner any information, but promised to bring a veterinarian to the scene.

The man drove away and did not return, and the dog was eventually taken to a vet but died of its injuries the next day.

Police describe the driver as 50 to 55-years old, 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds with brown hair, driving a newer, blue SUV, of an unknown make. (CKQQ)
