The completely skinned carcasses of two dogs were found lying in a creek-bed off Pond Run Road Nov. 28.
The dogs were found by Pierce Township police after receiving an anonymous phone call; they immediately called Clermont County Animal Control who picked up the dogs and started their investigation.
“As far as we know, this is the first time that something like this has happened in the county,” said Animal Control Officer Wesley Ramsey. “We are asking the community to help us; someone has to know what happened to these poor animals.”
Animal control is guessing that the dogs were of German Shepherd mix (the condition of the bodies make that identification difficult), one to two years old, and weighing approximately 40 to 50 pounds each.
