A Hoopeston Man’s Missing Dogs Turn up Dead

Joshua Inman and his family is mourning the loss of their two family dogs that turned up dead.  Police are now trying to figure out what happened.

The two pit bulls were found on the railroad tracks and Police suspect someone put them there.  A train did run them over, but they are not sure that is what killed the dogs.  There are a lot of unanswered questions.  The dogs are currently at the U of I Vet CLinic for autopsies.  The Inmans hope to have results by the end of the week.  Police also say a third dog was found dead last week.  It was not found on the tracks and it wasn’t a pit bull, but they are still trying to find it’s owner.

The Inman’s are hoping the person to blame isn’t against pitbulls.  Just because they are big and muscular and kind of scary looking doesn’t mean they are vicious.  If this was the situation then punishment is a must.
