After the bodies of two adult dogs, wearing leashes and collars, and of five puppies were found near Porur Lake, some animal rights activists in Chennai have offered a reward of Rs 10,000 for anyone who can provide information on the owners of the dogs or the person who killed them, according to a report in The Times of India.

The report says that what caused the death of the two adult Pomeranians and five puppies — all less than a month old — is yet to be determined. However, it quoted an activist Dinesh Baba as saying that poisoning is suspected because of the bluish colour of the bodies, and the blood oozing out of their mouths.

The dogs’ bodies were reportedly taken to Heart2Heart Veterinary Hospital in Santhome and later sent to the government veterinary hospital for post-mortem.

An FIR was also filed with the Porur SRMC police station.

The report quoted Baba as saying, "I am offering Rs 10,000 to anyone who will give any information about the dogs that will help us track the owners or the person who killed them."
