DENVER (CBS4)– Police in Denver hope someone will come forward with information about a series of dog poisonings. Some dogs residing in a neighborhood near the University of Denver have become ill after eating poisonous meatballs left in yards.
The Dumb Friends League and Crime Stoppers have teamed up to offer a $3,000 reward to capture the dog poisoning culprit.
“If anyone has any information on this case, please make an anonymous report to Crime Stoppers today,” said Duane Adams, vice president for field services at the Dumb Friends League. “We want to stop this person from poisoning any more pets in our community.”
Tips can be reported anonymously via phone or text to Crime Stoppers: (720) 913-STOP (7867) or text 274637 (CRIMES), then title DMCS and enter the message.
The messages are received at Crime Stoppers through a secure online system that protects a caller’s identity. Crime Stoppers then routes the message to the appropriate agency for action.
Crime Stoppers and several area animal welfare groups launched a state-wide anonymous tip and reward program in July to make it easier for people anywhere in Colorado to report inhumane activities involving dogs, cats or horses.
