CLEVELAND (AP) - A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction for whoever tied three dogs to railroad tracks in Ohio. Two dogs were killed by a train and one survived by crouching off the rails.

The reward was offered Wednesday by the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

The dog-tying happened last week in an industrial area overlooking downtown Cleveland. A railroad bridge monitor found the surviving dog Friday night and called police.

After a mandated waiting period to allow the owner to reclaim the dog, the survivor will be offered for adoption after Friday. The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County animal shelter has been getting about three inquiries an hour about adopting the mixed breed dog.
