BLOOMFIELD, Iowa (KYOU) - Rachel Jones is the woman who says she was attacked by dogs back in July. Her concerns prompted the city council to re-evaluate its dog ordinance.

Now, Jones says she woke up last Friday and found her German Shepherd dead in the backyard. She says her dog was poisoned.

Jones called the police who investigated and helped take her dog to the vet to determine the cause of death.

Assistant Chief of Police, Zach Dunlavy with the Bloomfield Police Department says, “An autopsy was performed, and it was determined that the cause of the death was natural causes. What I was told by the veterinarian’s office today.” He also says due to the cause of death being determined as natural causes there will be no further investigation.
