An investigation determined that a dead dog, which was discovered recently in the Rock Springs area, had not been shot. A picture of the dog carcass was posted on Facebook, resulting in public speculation about how the dog died, including the theory that it had been shot to death. A Sweetwater County animal control officer located the dog near the Rock Springs Reservoir Tank, near the base of the White Mountain. After investigating the carcass, the officer determined the dog, an older black mixed-breed female, had not been shot, but appeared to have died from natural causes, possibly a seizure. The dog was wearing a collar at the time it was found, but it did not have tags.
