Unsolved mystery in death of family dog


Fri, Jan 10th, 2014
Posted in All Features

As animal lover’s know, a pet becomes part of the family when it is brought home. Joe and Angi Kaase and their sons, Ryli and Quinci, felt this way about their 15 month-old German Shepherd named Tyson.

Ryli and Quinci loved spending time with Tyson, especially playing outside. Angi said, “When you would go outside and yell for the kids and they didn’t answer, all you had to do was whistle or holler for Tyson and whichever direction he peeked his head around, you knew our boys were over there.”

On Sunday, November 10, 2013, Joe Kaase went outside to put their vehicles in their shop for the night as snow had begun to fall. As Joe shut the doors of the shop Tyson went outside.

At 6 a.m. the next morning Angi went outside to feed Tyson. Tyson wasn’t around. At 7 a.m. she went back out to put Tyson in his kennel as her son was getting on the school bus and still no Tyson. When Angi left for work that morning she figured Tyson was snuggled up in his dog house keeping warm.

That afternoon, at approximately 4 p.m., Angi left work to attend school conferences in Harmony, Minn. and decided to stop home and check on the dog on the way. When she got home, there was still no sign of Tyson, no tracks in the snow, and none of his food had been eaten.

Angi and Ryli walked the entire property searching for Tyson checking to make sure he wasn’t caught on a fence or laying in an outbuilding injured. After finding no sign of him, Angi called the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Department to report a missing dog. Joe and Angi telephoned and stopped at neighbors and put a post on Facebook hoping someone had seen Tyson. The post was shared over 50 times by caring people concerned about the missing pet.

The Kaase’s walked their property a second time yelling and looking for Tyson. Angi said, “We wanted him home so bad we would even think we heard him from time to time in the distance.” However, it was not Tyson.

By Tuesday, November 12, Tyson had still not returned home and feeling desperate to find Tyson, Angi contacted Harmony Transit, the City of Harmony and the City of Preston to report their dog as missing and shared photos. Angi once again posted on Facebook and stated that the family received a ton of support and help in looking for their dog from those who knew Tyson and those who had never even met him.

Also starting on Tuesday, Joe’s parents .....
