CASTLE ROCK - Two dogs found dead in a backyard of a Castle Rock home were crushed, shaken and bitten by a wild animal, according to a necropsy - an animal autopsy.
The dogs' owner, Warren Lubliner, says he found the two dogs last Thursday night each with a puncture wound in the chest.
He told 9NEWS he suspected the dogs were shot as the family had been to court twice after receiving nuisance complaints about their dogs barking.
Castle Rock Police are now warning neighbors in the area of Rough Court to keep an eye on their pets.
