Woman breaks into Wildomar animal shelter and steals dog

Animal control officials in Wildomar need your help finding a woman who stole a dog from a shelter.

This security camera video shows the woman opening the door to a night drop kennel. She appears to be trying to coax a dog out.

When it doesn't respond, she moves onto another kennel and appears to force the door open.

She has more success there-- getting the dog to come out.

She removes her belt and uses it as a leash, wrapping it around the dog's neck.

Then the woman and the stolen dog walk out of the frame.

Animal Friends of the Valleys is looking for anyone who might know who the woman is.

If you do please give them a call.
