TULSA, Okla. — Police are investigating after a man's dogs were found dead after his truck and trailer were stolen.

On July 25, a man left his charcoal 2008 Dodge pickup truck, with trailer attached, running while he ran into a store near 12th and Sheridan. The truck and trailer were stolen with the owner's three dogs inside.

Two dogs were found dead in a neighborhood near 24th and Sheridan with 'suspicious injuries,' while the third dog was found dead later, that same night, near 21st and Sheridan, according to an Oklahoma Alliance for Animals Facebook post.

The owner said the dogs were dumped, and two had obvious injuries, while the third did not.

While it is possible the dogs were hit by cars, there are some unanswered questions about the condition of the bodies and their locations.
