Animal Protection Police Officers from the McLean Police District Animal Services Division are asking the public’s help in identifying the person(s) responsible for the recent deaths of two puppies. Officers were called to the 1900 block of Gallows Road in Vienna on Monday, March 11 around 11 in the morning when the deceased puppies were found next to a dumpster. A necropsy revealed both puppies died from blunt force trauma to their heads. Their breed was not able to be determined due to their young age. They are believed to have been about a month old. One was a male puppy with a unique blue merle coat and the other was a female with a fawn colored coat.
