New details in dog dragging, info given to DA

CLAREMORE — The Rogers County Sheriffs Department is waiting to here back from the District Attorney’s office regarding an investigation into the death of a dog found Friday morning near Chelsea.

A man has come forward explaining that he found the black lab on his property, according to Sheriff Scott Walton.
He said the dog had either been hit by a car or injured in some type of accident.  The dog was suffering, so he shot her to put her out of her misery, according to Walton.
The man said he left the dog in his yard, but when it started to smell, he used wire to drag her to the side of the road, without having to touch her, Walton said. 
No arrests have been made at this time.
The results of the Sheriff’s investigation have been turned over to District Attorney Janice Steidley’s office.
Deputies found the remains of a dog Friday that had its legs tied up with wire and dragged behind a vehicle until it was dead.
Jetta, a black female lab, had recently given birth to a litter of puppies,
A $10,000 reward was offered to information leading to the capture and arrest of the person responsible.
