VERNON, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a dozen dead dogs were found dumped in a wooded area of southern Indiana.

Jennings County Animal Control officials met with sheriff’s department detectives this week about the dogs, which were found near a roadway by a motorist driving in the county on Feb. 28.

Investigators say they were told the dead dogs weren’t there the previous day. They included three mature dogs and nine puppies, including two that were about a week or two old.

Cause of death for the dogs wasn’t immediately determined. Anyone with information about the dogs is asked to call the Jennings County sheriff’s office.
