Deputies from the Huron County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an apparent poisoning of seven German shepherd dogs.

According to Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson, Deputy Steven Bismack responded late Friday afternoon to 1855 W. Richardson Road in Colfax Township to investigate the poisoning.

Hanson said the dog owner, Rachael L. Matson, reported to police her daughter noticed that seven of their nine dogs were very sick.


The Bad Axe Animal Clinic was called and a veterinarian was sent to the Richardson Road property to examine the animals.

“It appears that during the day, an individual or individuals entered the unlocked kennel and put antifreeze in the dogs’ water,” said Hanson. “The on-scene veterinarian determined that the dogs were in such bad shape that a decision was made to euthanize the four young and three adult dogs.”

Animal blood samples and the suspected contaminated water samples were taken. Bismack was assisted by Trooper Jason Berg from the Michigan State Police Post in Bad Axe in gathering other evidence.

Hanson said the matter remains under investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Huron County Sheriff’s Office at (989) 269-6500 during regular business hours, or call Huron Central Dispatch at (989)269-6421 after regular business hours.

Look to the Tribune as further details become available.

I dont understand how someone can do this, I really dont get it.

Did that person watch them suffer? It's sick. They have a serious problem, an illness and even though I know they need help, I could seriously kick their ***.

Oh my god! They entered a kennel and poisoned the dogs? How insane! That's one of - if not the - most painful way to die! I watch all those CSI type shows and they have said that it is the worst - unimaginable - way to die. To do it to a helpless animal? What the heck could those dogs have ever done to deserve that? Bark? Or perhaps someone was angry with the owners and it was a revenge thing. In any case, what comes around, goes around and Karma will get those responsible in the end. Perhaps someone will spike their coolaid with some antifreeze. Grrr!

i used to kid about putting antifreeze in a bowl to get rid of the neighbor cats when i was younger.... until i watched a documentary on tv of animals and antifreeze... its a completely HORRIBLE way to die, probably one of the most painful and slowest...

They entered an unlocked kennel where 9 German Shepherds were? Nine!!! I would have to assume that the dogs knew the person (s).
