White Co. Sheriff's Office Investigating Dead Dogs
The White County Sheriff's Office is investigating the discovery of four dead dogs found dumped in a ditch along a county road.
Chief Deputy Phillip Miller told The Daily Citizen that investigators have tried to question Kensett Animal Control Officer George Edwards about the case - but that Edwards would not make a statement without first consulting with a lawyer.
Edwards declined comment when contacted by the newspaper. Investigators say the cause of the dogs' deaths could not be determined.
Investigators also said they have visited the animal control office in Kensett and found the animals there in apparently good condition.
Authorities say the dead dogs were found by a county resident who contacted the sheriff's office.
