  • Pit bull dump found near Middle Creek

     Hardin County Animal Control discovered three badly decomposed pit bulls and skeletal remains of two more dogs Thursday morning near the LaRue/Hardin County line on Middle Creek Road after receiving a call Wednesday night, Director Gerald Foley said.

    The department is looking for the public’s help on who may have dumped the animals at the location, and Foley said callers can leave anonymous tips.

    Help is needed as the dogs contained no trace of microchip identification, he said.

    “There was no ID of any kind at all,” he said.

  • Flood warning issued

    The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for northern LaRue County,  southern Hardin County and northern Green County until 11:45 p.m. A foot of water was reported over the road near the intersection of Hammonsville and Lataon-Turner Road in northern Hart County.

    Additional rainfall of up to 1.5 inches is possible in the warned area.

    Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on small creeks and streams.
