Reward grows in poisoning of 10 dogs in San Diego

April 22, 2011 |  4:53 pm

The reward for information leading to an arrest in the poisoning of 10 dogs at a San Diego trailer park has been increased to $5,000.

The dogs died at the El Rey Trailer Park in the Logan Heights neighborhood.

Necropsies were done on the animals to determine what kind of poison was used in hopes of aiding in a possible prosecution. The results have not been completed, said a spokeswoman for the San Diego Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The initial $1,000 reward was offered by San Diego Crime Stoppers. Now an additional $1,000 has been offered by the management of the trailer park and $3,000 by an anonymous individual.

Information can be relayed to Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

The death of a cat also may be linked to the poisoning.
