- Kansas, USA -
The Miami County Sheriff's Office is investigating after the discovery of ten deceased dogs on a property in Louisburg.
In a press release, the sheriff’s office said that on January 24, 2024, deputies responded to a property in the 25900 block of Rockville Road for a welfare check on multiple dogs on the property. Upon arrival, they could see that several dogs were sadly dead and several others were alive but malnourished.
As part of the investigation, a search warrant was obtained and executed. At the time the warrant was executed, no one was at the property, said the sheriff’s office.
Deputies found ten deceased Great Danes while nine Great Danes and one Shepherd-mix were found alive but in need of immediate medical attention.
Some of the surviving dogs are currently under care at a local veterinary while others are at a sanctuary. As stated in the press release, “They are not available to be visited or adopted until the investigation and case is complete.”
The sheriff’s office said detectives believe this property “is part of a larger operation that spans across the State of Kansas and the United States” and they are working “with investigators in other jurisdictions and believe at least 100 other canines are in similar condition based on the other jurisdiction investigations.”
Additionally, detectives have identified a possible person(s) of interest but no additional details were disclosed.
As for the deceased Great Danes, necropsies will be performed to determine their cause of death and the sheriff’s office will release updates as they become available.
The sheriff’s office encourages anyone who has information regarding this investigation to come forward and call (913) - 294 - 3232. If you wish to remain anonymous, please call (816) - 474 - TIPS (8477). Thank you!
I emailed the Miami County Sheriff's Office to see whether additional information was available on all of the Voiceless Victims. Part of the response I received via email from Undersheriff Kelly read: “At this time we are not releasing any photos of the animals while the investigation is ongoing. I can tell you that the 10 that were rescued are still very sick and being treated medically and under constant care and supervision. The rescue and the veterinary are doing everything they can to make sure they have a full recovery. Unfortunately, we are in a waiting period to know if they will make a full recovery or not.”
Undersheriff Kelly tells me that he will likely release more information either today or tomorrow, so I will update the article accordingly.
