Dozens of dogs disappear in Idaho

Dozens of dogs are disappearing in Magic Valley.

The Humane Society of the United States reports that about 40 dogs of have gone missing since November in the valley, in the Twin Falls area of southern Idaho.

“Someone is coming around and plucking animals out of people’s yards,” said Lisa Kauffman, Idaho director of the HSUS. “We don’t have any leads.”

The society has put out a $5,000 reward for information, and people are buzzing about their lost pets on social media.

The problem is a tough one to track, because many people who lose pets don’t go to the police.
