One dog carcass was found skinned and with its paws cut off. Another dog was found dead in a bag after its owner received an anonymous phone call. Another dog was found dead, apparently stoned to death. A fourth dog was found severed in half.

Park County Sheriff Scott Steward says his office is investigating at least one of the cases. He says people need to be careful to keep their pets from running loose.


Case Updates

The Humane Society is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the conviction of whoever has been killing dogs in Park County.

At least four dogs have turned up dead around Park County in recent weeks. One man has come forward, saying he shot one of the dogs because it was acting aggressively on his property. Authorities say there are no plans to charge the man.

But the deaths of other dogs remain unsolved. They include one dog that was apparently stoned to death and another dog that was cut in half. Heidi Hopkins, Wyoming state director of the Humane Society, says the organization offers rewards in animal cruelty cases across the country.
