BOULDER, Colo. — A TV personality offered up a large chunk of the $3,500 reward that had been posted as of Friday for information about the poisoned dog meatballs that have been found in a Boulder County park.
Aaron Harber, who hosts “The Aaron Harber Show” on KCDO-TV in Sterling, offered up $1,000 of the reward, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. The meatballs were discovered at a neighborhood park located at Buckingham Green Park in Gunbarrel.
At least six meatballs have been found in total, and they were reportedly being tested for DNA this week. Three dogs have already eaten the meatballs, which police say are laced with rat poison.
One of those dogs is a 6-month-old Golden Retriever named Amos.
“People can be mad,” Amos’ owner, Brandon Weil, said. “But you don’t do this if you’re mad. You tell somebody why you’re mad. You don’t poison animals. You just don’t do that.”
Harber, also a dog owner, feels the same way, telling the Camera he considers his pets family members.
The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the case, and Harbor said his reward money could be doled out by the department to anyone who provides a helpful lead.
If you would like to provide any such information, you’re being urged to call the sheriff’s office at 303-441-4444.
