Four dogs have been found beaten in the head and shot to death in rural southern Idaho, authorities said on Thursday, adding to the mysterious disappearance and killing of dozens of dogs that has left residents in that area on edge.
Examinations showed that the German Shepherd mixes, whose carcasses had been dumped in a pile off a highway south of Twin Falls, had been bludgeoned and shot in the head, said Gary Trostel, deputy with the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office.
"We didn't know until today how they had died: poisoned or shot or what. We knew it was some type of head trauma the way the eyes bulged out and with all the bleeding," Trostel said.
Animal control officers reported last month that roughly 30 dogs had gone missing since November in Twin Falls and nearby communities in a farming region known as the Magic Valley.
A German shepherd discovered by hikers last month in an area known as the Devil's Corral in neighboring Jerome County appeared to have suffered what animal control officers called a "ritualistic execution" in which its head was crushed with rock and its carcass covered with a purple cloth.

I knew this dog story would get responses when other stories don’t.
Ha! What about muslims?
I couldn’t have been those two pixies from “Progressive Kentucky”. They were too busy taping McConnell’s staff meeting.
Now ‘who’ would want to kill dogs ? Who considers them ‘unclean’ and would kill them ceremonially ?
Ritualistic dog killings, who would have thought it?
maniac on the loose......
More likely a latent serial killer or perhaps a muslim who is practicing
What about PETA? They’ve been known to slaughter pets.
Lol...You made me think of Jay Leno’s joke about dogs when the Olympic Games were in Seoul....
Yeah PETA is pretty bad but the one thing you can say for them is that when they are done killing someones pet, they have the decency to throw the animal in the trash not leave it lying beside the road!
They all start with animals...at least on tv crime shows.
I didn’t realize they were so tidy. They probably recycle too.
