Sibley, Iowa — After initially reporting that they were searching for someone who dumped puppies off a bridge north of Sibley, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office is now saying they weren’t puppies after all.
They report that on Sunday, April 12, 2015, one of their deputies pulled two carcasses from the creek where the alleged dead puppies were dumped. The Sheriff’s Office was unable to identify the animal or its breed at that time.
The next day (Monday, April 13th) the sheriff’s office reports that they contacted the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to examine the carcasses. The DNR determined that the animals were not puppies but were raccoons.
The Sheriff’s Office is still looking for information on who dumped the raccoons in the creek. If you have any information please contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at (712)754-2556 or if you want to remain anonymous you can make a Text-A-Tip report.
