Authorities Exhume Rogers County Dog for Further Investigation

Authorities have exhumed the carcass of a Rogers County dog originally thought to be dragged to death last month.

District Attorney Janice Steidley said authorities are continuing to investigate leads in the death of Jetta, a 2-year-old Labrador. She was found dead in Winganon on the side of the road a month after giving birth to nine puppies.

Last Friday, the dog's body was sent to the pathology department at Oklahoma State University for a necropsy to determine her cause of death.

Originally, the Rogers County Sheriff's Office said someone had tied the dog's legs with a wire to the back of a car and dragged it nearly a mile down the road. Several days later, authorities said a man came forward and said he had shot a dog that was in distress but didn't say that dog had been dragged to death.

The District Attorney's Office later re-opened the case. The Sheriff's Office has been advised to not comment on the case until further evidence can be presented to them.

Once results of the necropsy are complete, prosecutors will review the report and determine whether anyone should be charged, Steidley said.
