    A search warrant has been served at a home in a trailer park in Lincoln Park after ten dogs were found poisoned to death, according to the San Diego Humane Society.

    No arrests had been made at the El Rey Trailer Park on lower 47th Street by 1.30 p.m., according to officials. No other information was immediately available.

    Animal Field Officers were called to the trailer park last Saturday and found five dogs dead upon arrival. They found three more poisoned dogs dead last Sunday and two more last Monday morning.

    The dogs belong to several different owners. Many of them suffered violent seizures, foaming at the mouth.

    Investigators say dogs are known to run freely in the complex. They believe someone got fed up with what some consider a nuisance and took things into their own hands.

    An anonymous donor added $3,000 to a $2,000 reward for new information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case last week. Crime Stoppers is offering $1,000 of the reward and the owners of El Rey Trailer Park are offering the other $1,000 reward.

    If you have any information regarding this case, please call (888) 580-8477.

    The crime carries a sentence of one year in prison and a $20,000 fine. Multiple convictions technically could bring consecutive sentences.
