SEATTLE —

Seattle City Light is trying to determine what caused a dog to be electrocuted while being walked in the city's Queen Anne neighborhood.

Lisa McKibbin was walking her dog, Sammy, on Thanksgiving Day when the 68-pound dog apparently stepped on a metal plate next to a street lamp. She says her dog started yelping in pain, then started convulsing and collapsed. The German shorthair pointer died a short time later.

City Light spokeswoman Suzanne Hartman says power was immediately cut to the light post. Crews believe something is wrong with the light's circuitry, such as a bad grounding wire, but the exact cause has not been determined.
