Benito Baeza

Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) – While Jerome Sheriff Deputies were patrolling at about 2:28am Wednesday, they report they observed two vehicles parked in the roadway of 300 West and 100 South. Both vehicles had occupants inside. Detective Dan Kennedy said one of the vehicles, a blue Toyota pickup, had an animal in the bed of the pickup. At first the deputy believed it may have been a calf. Authorities say there have been several calf thefts that have been reported in the area during the last several months.
When the deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, the pickup left the scene at a high rate of speed. As the vehicle turned west of the intersection of 300 West and 100 South, a large dog, which was tied up inside the bed of the pickup, jumped out of the bed. The dog was drug for some distance at a speed of approximately 10 miles per hour. The dog managed to slip out of its collar and ran off. The vehicle continued for a short distance before turning into a corn field in the area of 340 West and 100 South. Officers from the Jerome and Wendell Police Departments and Gooding County deputies responded to assist. The pickup was later discovered in a corn field.

The driver of the vehicle has not yet been located.
Offices searched the area and attempted to locate the dog, but were unable to locate it.

If you have any information regarding this incident or come in contact with an injured dog south west of Jerome, please contact the Jerome Sheriff’s Office at 324-1911.
