Abandoned dogs prompt investigation

Three taken to Kootenai Humane Society

At least 18 husky-type dogs found abandoned at several locations over the past several weeks have prompted an animal neglect investigation, Bonner County Sheriff's Office officials said Tuesday. BCSO public information officer Capt. Tim Hemphill said the dogs have been found in at least three locations — Spirit Lake, Blanchard and Athol. "Many of them appear to be in very poor condition," he said.
