$1,000 offered for information on recent dog poisonings

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) - The Caruthersville Humane Society is offering $1,000 to anyone with information that leads to arrests in recent cases of suspected dog poisoning.

Humane Society president Carol Wilcox told Region 8 News about two cases involving dogs that died due to what appeared to be rat poison.

The dogs were not strays. They belonged to families who lived in the area near 10th and Laurant Streets in Caruthersville.

Wilcox wants to remind people to call Caruthersville Police Department Animal Control at (573)333-2121 to complain about neighborhood dogs.

Killing an animal is a Class A misdemeanor in Missouri, according to Attorney General Chris Koster's web site. It carries a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail.

The $1,000 reward for information in the suspected cases of poison, as well as the entire Caruthersville Humane Society, are funded strictly through donations.

Contact the Caruthersville Humane Society to donate or find out more information about adoption, spay and neuter services and upcoming events at (573)333-0100.
