SIKESTON, Mo. (KMOX) – Authorities in southeast Missouri want to find out who or what is killing pit bulls near Sikeston.

Trace White with the humane society there says MoDOT workers found five dead dogs while mowing highways within the past two weeks.

He says another was found, Thursday, “It looked like they tied something around his jaw. His whole jaw was broken. A lot of the other ones had severe scarring, like they could’ve been abused or used for dogfighting, we’re not sure yet.”

White says anyone with information on the dead pit bulls is asked to call the humane society in Sikeston (573-471-4801) or their local police.
