dog attack e1285789579882 Reward Offered In Case Of Poisoned Dogs


Huron County authorities are investigating the apparent poisoning deaths of seven German shepherds at a home in Colfax Township. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says they believe someone entered an unlocked kennel on Friday and poisoned the dogs’ water.

“Looking at the water, which was discolored green and had other indications of contamination, it was believe that it was antifreeze. With that being said, the veterinarian determined that the dogs needed to be euthanized — which that happened on the scene,” Hanson told WWJ.

Hanson said they are following some leads in the case.

“I don’t think this was just a random — let’s go into a yard and poison some dogs. Something, my feeling is, motivated this,” he said.

“Basically, you gotta look at, somebody’s got some retaliation taking place here, you know. That’s just one avenue to look at here. We still have people to talk to and one individual has been difficult to find,” Hanson said. 

The Michigan Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading up to the arrest of the person responsible for the deaths of these dogs.
