CHERRY VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Ohio– More than 20 deceased dogs were found on a dead-end road in Ashtabula County Monday morning.

The Ashtabula County Animal Protective League went to investigate a tip on Linton Road in Cherry Valley Township. That’s where they discovered the remains of 22 dogs and a pair of gloves.

The APL said they believe the suspect knew this was a secluded location.

The dogsĀ ranged in age from puppy to 8 years old. It’s unclear how they died so some of the animals were sent to a local vet for a necropsy. The APL put them in bags to be cremated.

Anyone with information should call the Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office.
