The reward being offered for information leading to an arrest in the death of a black Labrador that was found in a dumpster last month has been increased to $7,500.
Kona’s Coalition head Jordi Mikeli-Jones said Tuesday afternoon that since the organization began taking donations to offer a reward for information leading to an arrest in the case, numerous Yukoners have come forward to help the cause.
They have noted their desire to help in some way after news of the discovery surfaced.
“I think it’s just incredible,” Mikeli-Jones said of the donations that have flooded in.
Whitehorse RCMP and city bylaw officers were called to the site – a dumpster in the Marwell area next to the Copper Road Veterinary Clinic – when a witness noticed a dog’s leg in the dumpster.
