HAYS, Kan. (AP) - The strychnine poisonings of three dogs in northwest Kansas has prompted the Humane Society of the United States to offer a $5,000 reward for information in the deaths.

The Hays Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1bafDvp ) two Labrador retrievers and a Chihuahua were found dead on Dec. 18 in a neighborhood west of Hays. All three dogs were outdoors when they ingested the poison.

Ellis County Sheriff Ed Harbin says it’s still unknown if the poisonings were accidental or deliberate. But Harbin wants to make sure the source of the strychnine is found to make sure no other animals or people are harmed.

The Humane Society’s reward is for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever was responsible.
