The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever left poisoned meatballs at a Gunbarrel park - sickening three dogs - is now up to about $7,500.

The Daily Camera reports about 100 people - and a few dozen dogs - gathered Saturday in Boulder for games, raffles and a silent auction, with all proceeds going toward a reward for information leading a conviction. The fundraiser brought in $2,860.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation says DNA test results are inconclusive in efforts to track down the person responsible for tainting the meatballs with an ingredient commonly used in pesticides and rodent poisons.

Boulder County Animal Control Officers say at least eight meatballs were left in a grassy area of the park in April.
