Owner of dumped dog remains found

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Cedar Rapids police have located the owner of four dead dogs found along the shore of Cedar Lake.

Police say animal control found no apparent injuries to the dogs, and it appears they were dead when they were placed in plastic bags and dumped in the lake.

Police say no charges will be filed but want to remind pet owners this is not the proper way to dispose of a deceased pet. According to police, if a pet owner has a pet that dies, they may dispose of the remains by placing it in a black garbage bag and putting it in his or her own dumpster. A person may also take it to the landfill, where there may be an applicable charge of 5 dollars.
