Let there be a special place in hell for the people who kill a dog.

It happened at Enger Tower in Duluth on Saturday when David Brazeau, his dog, Shyra in tow, stopped to read the historical marker. Then he heard a thud and his wife’s scream, KARE 11 reports.

Someone had dropped a rock on his dog.

David says his first instinct was to run up the stairs and find out who was responsible, but when he picked his dog up he felt her heart was still beating.

He and Jillianna ran down the path to their parked car with the intention of taking Shyra to an emergency vet to save her life, but when they got to the parking lot the little dog had already passed from her injuries.

At that point they called police and went back to the tower in hopes of identifying the person who killed their dog. They recalled a suspicious man who had walked up in back of them and pointed him out to police, but David says that man told officers he believed the dog had fallen off the tower.

So the person is still out there somewhere. The couple is warning people about Enger Tower.
