    This weekend a group of men from Northern Ky went to Peabody rabbit hunting. When they arrived at the motel they were staying at they fed their beagles and went to bed. Later on that night they checked on the beagles again and they all were fine. When the men woke up the next morning they found all 12 of their beagles dead. AND YES YOU HEARD ME RIGHT 12 BEAGLES WERE DEAD! Several of the bodies were brought home as well as the dog food to have tests run. The men do not know if foul play was a factor. So I am asking anyone one reading this post who is from the peabody area if they knowing any information pertaining to this tradgedy. Any one who knows anything will remain annoyomous. Please contact me at 859-391-4597 day or night. Again anything information that you can provide will be greatly appreciated. REMEMBER ONE THING THIS COULD HAVE BEEN YOU! If foul play was a factor we need to bring justice forward to the people involved. I will keep you posted on the test results.

    I wonder if someone left a parked car with the exhaust running next to the dog boxes? I assume no marks of any kind on the dogs?

    Did they ask the motel people if they had security cameras on the parking lot. I hate to hear that this happened, can't fathom why anybody would do something to a bunch of cute beagles in the back of a truck but you never know with all the sickos out there. When we were still grouse hunting in Wisconsin I'd always sneak my bird dogs in the room with us but I guess its a little harder to do with a dozen small hounds. If foul play was a factor I hope they catch the person responsible and ....well, lets just say do something bad to them.

    Something else to think about, did they buy a new bag of dog food for the trip or take a bag they'd already fed out of? Could have got a bad batch of dogfood. There was a huge recall a year or two ago on Diamond and several other brands. Dont remember now what was wrong with it but one batch killed a bunch of dogs.

    Could someone threw some tainted hotdogs in the box with them?

    This is a tragedy to say the least. I hope if foul play was involved, the suspects get what they deserve. I know first hand that a good beagle hound isn't cheap. And 12 of them just puts the cherry on top. I can't see how 12 die of a freak accident unless it had something to do with the food. Hope more info comes out sooner than later.

    I agree with mlittle. It sounds like they suffocated. It amazes me how many people make or buy dog boxes that don't have the proper ventilation. A dog has a much greater risk of suffocating in a dog box rather than dying from exposure from too much air.

    Wow that is terrible. We were down this weekend also.
    We had eight dogs with us. Two dogs in a small box and six dogs in a large box.
    I don't think it was suffication. What motel did they stay in?

    I know I want to know excactly what happened here. This is a horrible tradegy. Please post all the findings as soon as you can.

    I called my vet and here is what he said about food poisioning. Some of the most severe cases of food poisoning can result in long-term illness and death. However, most food poisoning is not serious. Most dogs begin feeling better within 24 to 48 hours. Queasiness and slight diarrhea may last one to two days longer

    Everytime I take out my dogs hunting, I am concerned for their safety and my human hunting partner above all else.
