Police are following up scores of leads following an appeal to track down those responsible for the "barbaric" killing of a Labrador.

The chocolate-coloured dog, aged between two and three, was found dead on 5 February at the side of the Sulby reservoir on the Isle of Man.

It had its muzzle bound and legs tied with duct tape and is thought to have been drowned.

Sgt Mark Newey said: "We have had a tremendous response from the public."

Police spent the weekend talking to dog walkers at the reservoir in a bid to get fresh information and are now in the process of pursuing at least 60 lines of inquiry.

A reward of 2,500 has been offered by a local business for the prosecution and conviction of those responsible for the dog's death.
