Investigation into Death of Dog

The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office has been investigating the death of a dog that was located near Trail Creek road, south of the interstate. A Necropsy was performed by a licensed Veterinarian. The natural deterioration of the body made it difficult to determine the exact cause of death. Some of the injuries are consistent with those possibly caused by a vehicle. Some reports have mentioned bullet wounds throughout the body. These reports have been identified as inaccurate. Many of the wounds seen on the pictures occurred post-mortem. There were no ligature marks on the underside of the neck, other areas of the neck were unable to be examined due to decomposition. The investigation has determined this was most likely an unfortunate accident and the investigation has been closed.  If someone has more information regarding this investigation, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 582-2100
