FOREST COUNTY - Wildlife officials report that another dog-related death is believed to be related to a rash of poisonings happening in northeastern Wisconsin.

The Wausau Daily Herald reports that there have been at least five dogs that died and seven wild animals that have died from poison in the past year.

According to the United States Fish And Wildlife Service, the latest death was a three-year-old German Shepherd that was being walked in Forest County. 

The Wisconsin DNR and US Fish and Wildlife are still investigating the case and lab tests are currently pending.

Officials suggest that pet owners keep their pets on a leash when outside. They also suggest keeping an eye out for anything suspicious.
