CHIMES, Ark. (AP) - A $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the poisoning and shooting of nearly 60 dogs in northern Arkansas county is now being offered by the Humane Society of the United States.

The organization announced the reward Wednesday and asked people with information to call the Searcy County Sheriff’s Department.

Workers looking at an uninhabited piece of timber property in Searcy County last week came across some of the bodies of the dogs. Investigators determined the dogs had been fed sleeping pills inside of hotdogs before being shot. Some of the dogs survived, but were euthanized because of severe injuries.

The Searcy County Humane Society is caring for a handful of dogs that survived.
