Reward offered in poisoning of two dogs

SANDPOINT, Idaho - The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the poisoning deaths of two Sandpoint, Idaho dogs.

On January 30th, Scooby, a Labrador Retriever/Rhodesian Ridgeback-mix, was found by his owners having uncontrollable seizures. The dog's owners, who found Scooby in distress after work, attempted to rush him to the veterinarian, but he died in their arms on the way there.

The veterinarian was unable to revive the dog, and expressed concern at how quickly such a healthy and active dog became ill.

The owners realized they hadn't seen their other dog, Chloe, a miniature Pomeranian before they left their home for the animal hospital. The owners rushed back home to see if the second dog was okay. After searching, the couple found Chloe dead, lying under their bed. It was estimated the dog died a few hours earlier.

At the request of their veterinarian, animal autopsies were performed on each dog. Chunks of raw meat and pellets that resembled the chemical, Strychnine, were found in the dogs' stomachs. The contents of their stomach and tissue samples were sent to the University of Idaho, where it was confirmed that the pellets were highly concentrated Strychnine.
