Two Deceased Dogs on I-91 Between Exits 8 & 9, Police Seeking Information

On Saturday April 12, 2014, at approximately 0800 Hours, the Windsor Police Department was notified that 2 deceased dogs were laying on interstate 91 between Exit 8 and 9. Windsor Police responded in conjunction with Vermont State Police.

Two male Pitbulls were found deceased at mile marker 57 over 8. The dogs had appeared to have been killed prior to being thrown from a moving motor vehicle. Both dogs had small caliber gunshot wounds to the facial area.

The owners contacted the Windsor Police Department and identified the pit bulls as Dunkin and Diesel, who were loved family pets. Diesel had a large amount of scaring and may have been used in dog fighting.

The owners stated that they let the dogs outside to play at approximately 4:30 pm the previous night. It was highly unusual that the dogs did not return home within a few hours and the family grew concerned. The family lives in the county road area of Windsor, the dogs were dumped directly behind the family’s house on the travel portion of the northbound lane of interstate 91.

Anyone with information is asked to please contact Officer Ryan Palmer of the Windsor Police Department 802-295-9425
