The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an animal cruelty case after four dogs were found shot and killed on the side of a road.

Deputies said they were dispatched to Fremont County Road 11 on reports of multiple dead animals beside the road on April 12. Upon arrival, deputies found a number of dead calves and dogs next to the road.

The sheriff’s office said the calves were reported before the dogs were seen, but deputies said the calves do not appear to be a part of the animal cruelty case, more of an illegal dumping case. The Brand Inspector that responded was unable to locate the owner for the calves.

There were four black and white collie mix dogs ranging from puppies to adults. All four dogs were shot and killed, according to deputies.

There were no reports of missing dogs matching their descriptions, they also didn’t have any tags, collars or chips.

Anyone with information is asked to call Animal Control Officer Miller at (719) 276-5555 or Fremont County Crimestoppers at (719) 275-STOP.
