Animal control say emaciated dog has been trapped for 12 days

Clare county animal control is asking for the public's help to capture a dog that is stranded on a small island on Cranberry Lake northeast of the city of Harrison.

In a Facebook post, they say Zaria, a brown and white Great Dane yes went missing on 8/18

The animal shelter said Tuesday on its Facebook page that officials had spotted the dog using a drone, but then lost track of her again. They discontinued the search because they were concerned about stressing the emaciated animal.

Animal control officers say they are working today to built a makeshift bridge to an open area of the island where they will set a live trap. If that doesn't work, they are planning to use a team of volunteers on Thursday to go to the island and try to capture the dog.

Anyone interested in helping can volunteer through the Clare county Animal Shelter Facebook page
