The Animal Welfare Society of Monroe (A.W.S.O.M.) shelter has reported that three additional dead dogs were found in plastic bags along the roadside.
Each was found in a separate location in the west end of Monroe County: one near the ShopRite in Brodheadsville, another on Jonas Road, and the third off Merwinsburg Road.
One of the dogs appeared to have been shot, and another had been reported as a lost dog by its owner.
"I can't stress enough. Please stay with your animals. Don't let them out of your sight. Have them on a leash. Somebody is going around and taking animals and God knows doing what with them."
