Reward Up To $3,500 In Dog Poisonings Case 10-05-2010

Huron County authorities are investigating the apparent poisoning deaths of seven German shepherds at a home near Bad Axe, in Colfax Township.
The Humane Society is offering up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible.
And now a Birmingham resident is also adding $1,000 to the total reward being offered.
Huron County Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson said that it appears someone entered an unlocked kennel at the home, located at 1855 W. Richardson Road, on Friday, Oct. 1, and put antifreeze in the dogs' water.
Four young dogs and three adult dogs were euthanized after a vet determined they were too sick to be treated.
“Poisoning is a terribly cruel way to die, which is why deliberately poisoning an animal is a felony crime in Michigan,” said Jill Fritz, the Humane Society's Michigan state director. “The Humane Society of the United States is hopeful that this reward will help find the person(s) responsible for the intense suffering these dogs experienced.”
Investigators were analyzing evidence that includes blood samples from the animals and samples taken from the water.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Huron County Sheriff’s Office at 989-269-6500.
