Duluth police find dog from Michigan left outside church


Duluth police have found the owner of a dog left alone outside a church, that was registered to an address in Michigan.

The dog was found lying, not moving, in front of a church on Skyline Parkway around 4 a.m., the department wrote in a Facebook post.

An officer approached, found the animal was shivering, and calmed the pup enough to get a leash on him. He then brought the dog to his squad car to warm up.

The officer then learned that the dog's name is "Panda Bear" and is from an address in Marquette, Michigan – a city in the state's Upper Peninsula, along the shores of Lake Superior, that's more than 3 hours north of Green Bay.

According to the Facebook post, the officer tried to contact the owner and number listed - but it was disconnected. An update later Friday afternoon said simply the owner has been found – but offered no additional details.

Panda Bear was then taken to the City of Duluth's Animal Shelter.
