(KUTV) -- The Tooele County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of two dogs.
A tip reported earlier in the week told deputies that the animals were found near Smelter Road, the sheriff's office said.
When investigating officers went to check the scene, they found nothing.
After it snowed, deputies returned and found the dogs that had their photos posted on social media by a concerned resident.
A local veterinarian confirmed the dogs had died from starvation.
Deputies aren't sure who the animals belong to and they aren't sure if foul play was involved.
