LINN COUNTY (KWWL) -

Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner said several homes on East Main Street in Prairieburg had poisonous meatballs placed intentionally in dog kennels and yards.

He said at least two dogs have died, and a detective has been assigned to the case.

Bryce Plower's dog, Gucci, is among the dead.

"I would never guess something this terrible would happen," he said.

Bryce said his brother's dog, Beckett, is still recovering after coming in contact with a poisonous meatball.

Now the two hope whoever is responsible will come forward.

"It's a tragedy," said Plower.

"I just don't want anymore animals to suffer. I just want everybody to be aware and check their yards and just keep a look out for anything suspicious because what's this world coming to when people target defenseless animals?"

Anyone with information about the poisonous meatballs is asked to contact the Linn County Sheriff's Office at (319) 398-3911.
