A pastor in Jayess, Mississippi, is grappling for answers after finding four of his prized hunting dogs dead – apparently poisoned after eating tainted meat. According to the Clarion Ledger, Andy May found four of his twelve hunting beagles dead on Friday – just two days after their last rabbit hunting journey.
May said, “When I found the first two, I was saying, ‘Oh, no! Oh, no!’ And then I went to the pen where my buddy was and hoping to see that he would come to the gate, but he didn’t. He was dead. I’m just heartbroken.” May’s four dogs died, as did one other dog, who belonged to one of the pastor’s friends.
May posted photos of the dogs who were poisoned to his Facebook page on January 26 – he stated that he was “sick” over the dogs’ deaths and was offering a reward for information leading to whoever is responsible for the cruel act. The poisoning has been reported to the local authorities, but no arrests have been made.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
