Payette County Sheriff’s Office has an ongoing investigation after a man found three dead dogs in garbage bags left on BLM land outside of Fruitland.
On October 18, Mike Rohrer had gone to the area to go shooting when he saw the bags discarded in the desert.
Rohrer said initially he thought someone had dumped trash but when he got closer he found three dead husky puppies, each stuffed in a white kitchen garbage bag.
After posting the picture on social media, a friend of his suggested he reports to the police.
Payette County Sheriff’s Office is now investigating this incident.
