One Kentucky community is outraged over a litter of puppies left to die in the middle of the road.

Someone made the gruesome discovery of the puppies, dead inside a bag, on U.S.60 in Bath County near the Salt Lick community.

Now, animal advocates are offering a $2500 reward to find out who is responsible for killing the dogs.

"I've never seen anything like it, it was horrifying, I had to turn around, because it made me instantly sick," said Nancy Huff, who lives just down the road from where the puppies were left.

"They were all over the road. I just don't understand who could do something like this," Huff went on to say.

Huff, as well as members of the Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals (SPCA), believe the puppies were left there deliberately.

"Why would someone leave alive or dead puppies in the middle of the road, somebody did this on purpose," Eugene Kinney, with Kentucky SPCA said.

Kinney says at this point in the investigation, they have no leads, but he is confident someone will be held responsible for what he calls a despicable crime.

"We will find out who did this and we will bring them to justice, there is just no excuse for something like this," Kinney said.

Kinney is seeking felony charges, not misdemeanor, which is usually what animal abuse calls for, however if they call this a case of torture, felony charges can then be applied.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Bath County Sheriff's Department or your local law enforcement to be eligible for the reward money.
