A big reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction in the deaths of several dogs in south-central Iowa. Warren County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Mike Morrison says four dogs were poisoned. Three of them died.
“They all happened within the city limits of Hartford and they all happened in the same time frame of late summer,” Morrison said. Investigators believe someone fed the dogs rat poison. Morrison doesn’t believe it was an accident, but so far, there are no suspects.
“We’ve had people who’ve been cooperative with the sheriff’s office in trying to determine what happened and how it happened,” Morrison said. “So, we’re still trying to look into that and just find the truth in the matter.” The Humane Society of the U.S. on Wednesday announced its offering a $2,500 reward in the case.
