Dead dogs dumped near Clovis

News

CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – When you walk down Kimberly Lane just outside of Clovis, you see remains of dog after dog.

Lisa Mudett is an animal lover. When she saw what was happening on the street, she started taking pictures of the dog and posting them on a Facebook page she created for lost and found dogs.

“We just need to you know, take some action on it and hopefully dig into this and find out what’s going on and why they’re being dumped here,” said Mudgett

It is not just dead dogs dumped on Kimberly Lane.  The Curry County Sheriff’s Office says that they have seen livestock, coyotes and deer.

People who live in the area say that finding dead animals along the road has been a problem for at least a year now. They also say it has become increasingly worse.

The Curry County Sheriff’s Office told KRQE News 13 that there is no evidence to indicate that this is animal cruelty.  They believe that the remains are being dumped so that people don’t have to pay to dispose of them at the Clovis landfill.

However, some believe that the animals are victims of dog fighting.  Whatever the reason may be, people would just like to see it gone.

“I just want this to end, I don’t want to drive down the road and see dead animals,” said Mudgett.
