CISNE, IL (WFIE)- Authorities are looking for the person who shot two dogs in Illinois.

It happened in Cisne this week.

Your help is needed to catch the person responsible.

As you can imagine the owner is very devastated, three of his dogs were found dead last week.

Last Monday, J.D. Williamson was on a hunting trip.

He says his three beagles got away from him.

On Tuesday, Williamson says he was notified they were dead on US Route 45, just east of Cisne.

Sheriff's deputies say two of the dogs were shot to death intentionally, the other was run over on the highway.

Deputies tell us they've received a lot of tips from the public on this case and will be questioning a suspect soon.
