Dognapping stories cause concern

DARLINGTON - Recent reports on social media and a particularly violent end to a dog believed to be stolen from a home in rural Darlington have left residents of Lafayette, Grant and Iowa counties fearful for their pets. Lafayette County Sheriff Reg Gill has heard of missing dog complaints as recently as Thursday but said a case of proven dognapping rarely crosses his desk. "It's hard to confirm whether or not they're dognapped or they've run away," Gill said.
