One of the men was a Humane Society worker, Kyle Holcomb. There were greyhounds, Labradors, a pitbull and some mixed breed dogs.

Some of the greyhounds had been skinned, at least one dog had been shot. All the dogs appeared to have been healthy prior to their death, possibly even family pets. They didn’t appear to be malnourished and had trimmed nails.

The stench was so overpowering that local firefighters helping were forced to wear masks while recovering the carcases.

Joni Dailey, an agent with the Humane Society said, “This is just horrific. It’s just sickening. It was very sickening.”

“I’ve just never seen anything like this, and I’ve lived in Logan County all my life,” said Bret Holcomb with the Humane Society. “I don’t know why anyone would want to do what they did to these dogs.”

The bodies of the dead dogs were taken to the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine Tuesday afternoon for a necropsy to determine the cause of death and see if any more detail could be determined.

I just don’t even know what to say.  How could anyone do this?  All those poor dogs.  Authorities are even asking that is anyone is missing a pet to send a picture so they can see if they can identify any of the dogs.  Can you imagine your dog missing, wondering where it’s at, then hearing this story.  There are some seriously sick people out there!
