Dead Dogs Found On Chains, In Pens In Beaufort County

At least five dogs were found dead this morning at a home down a dirt road in Beaufort County.

Animal Control Director Sandy Woolard tells WITN News that they know of five dead dogs found on Davis Lane, outside of Pinetown. Woolard says some of the dead dogs were on chains, while others were on pens on the property.

A Sheriff's Office investigator says they are in the early stages of the case and that multiple dead dogs were found on the property.

Animal control says they received a call from a citizen who was concerned about animals on the property. No one currently lives on the property and deputies are still trying to determine who owns the land.

So far no one has been arrested in the case.

    BC animal control never tries to help dogs. I have a dog(pit mix) that has tried to kill my jack russel(10 lbs) We had to fire a shot in the air to get him to run off, Over a year now calling animal control everytime they come running at us and NOTHING! These dogs, (3 i think) had more that died, killed another dog by tearing the puppy's belly open! I would never want to shoot these dogs because they deserve a better life, but also if animal control won't do anything if my family(me and my son) are in danger i will protect us! They came after me and my husband one time and animal control never called me back!

      Ok......if you re-read your own story ANONYMOUS, you will realize that it does not make sense..your telling us that these dogs are dangerous and you would protect your life against them, and at the same time you are saying that animal control wont do there job and find them a good home which they deserve. Animal Control is not a rehabilitation center. It is not jail either. It is the end of the road. A dog with the attitude which you claim it has, does not need to be adopted out. Thats the first problem. People calling in making up stories to try and get something done. Second of all. Its the reality that animal control actually is tuck taking on the responsibilitie of the un-responsible owners, and people block the death part out of their minds with excusses such as yours, when in reality they are just more dogs for animal control to euthanize. I think everyone should go to animal control for a gas viewing and then think a little more afterwards.....

    Let's get rid of deer dog hunting. As a group we can put an end to such abuse. Think about the animals. Call your county commissioners and state reps. Make sure your voice is heard.

    Who said it was hunting dogs? It coulda been any kind of dogs and until they tell you what kind they were yall need to stop assuming! They are animals with hearts just like some of you with hearts and I feel that the AC needs to do something about it and soon! It is really getting out of hand up here!

    maybe I missed something here. Where does it say they were hunting dogs? Know the facts and quit assuming everyone is like Kenneth Davis. Yes Kenneth Davis owns the dogs and he says a friend was suppose to be feeding them while he was gone. The funny part is he has been home for two weeks. I guess he just did not have time to check on them. He is responsible and I sure hope the BCSO does their job on this one. He needs to be charged.

      So, I guess dog hunters are not the model citizen you make them out to be... Imagine that..... Slavery, Jim crow, segregation, were all tradition at one time - luckily cooler heads prevailed, the same will be true with deer dog hunters and their mistreating of dogs..

        You can throw the prohibition of pot in there as well.In the not so distant future folks will view the current laws on weed as we do the fruitless alcohol prohibition laws of our past.Cooler HEADS will prevail. :)

    Poor Dogs! It may turn out to be like a case in Pitt County. Dogs were in Michelle Pollard's yard starving and the sheriff Mac Manning made sure she kept her job and was not charged. Anyone who mistreats animals need to be sent to some other country for punishment. Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth.

    When you see dogs in trucks, you can be sure that the owner is very proud of his dogs, and will do anything to protect them. These boxes have water buckets in them, and the running dogs are part of each of these men's, and women's, families. Running walkers/hounds are fed the best food available, kept healthy, and safe. A dog runner will not rest until all his dogs are in the kennel, fed, watered, and bedded down for the night. The next morning when the dogs see that truck pull up to the pen, they go crazy with joy thinking they will get to run today. Nothing pleases a running dog better than a days running, be it for deer, bear, fox, or rabbit. These dogs have a purpose in life, not like yard dogs that just run around messing up the community, with no one to care for them. We currently have 25 and each one is well cared for. "Jean" is so happy to go hunting that she will almost talk to you, begging to be put into that dog box. It is showing your pure ignorance to call a dog box a "death box." It is better suited for dogs than where you live is for you!

      Too bad you can't convince all your fellow hunters to treat their dogs the same. I've seen alot of real poor animals. Picked a rack of bones up one day while I was hunting on my land. Called the owner on the tag and returned him. Only been lost a day, probably 40lbs under weight.

    I am outraged. Its not that hard to find out wo owns property, its that they are not going to charge the owner is all. Its called the good ol boy network. The owner needs to go to prison. If they can do this to a helpless animal, what can they do to you? The law dont care. We will see if we get an update on the issue.
