Dog possibly stolen in rural Willmar

WILLMAR — Law enforcement received a call of a possibly stolen dog from a residence at 9:41 a.m. Friday at the 6100 block of Seventh Avenue Northwest in Willmar. The dog, a rough coat collie named Dakota, was allegedly taken from his kennel during the night.

The owner told the police an unknown individual was seen walking toward the kennel around 8:30 a.m. Friday as well.

On the Facebook page of the Hawk Creek Animal Shelter, it was reported the owners are certain the dog was stolen, as the gate to the kennel was unlocked and wide open and bricks near the gate had been moved. They also said the dog wouldn't have left on its own.

The post also said the individual sighted on the property Friday morning had been going toward the home's second dog, but when someone at the home yelled out the door, the individual took off.

The animal shelter is asking anyone with information or who may have seen Dakota to give them a call at 320-235-7612.
