A shocking and disturbing discovery of a dead dog found floating in Lake Erie tied into a pillowcase has authorities asking the public for information as to the owner of the dog, reports the Simcoe Reformer Ca.
On Friday evening, a camper at Long Point Provincial Park, Ontario, spotted the floating brown and white pillow case. Upon a closer examination, a partially decomposed dog’s leg was sticking out. The camper notified park authorities. According to Norfolk OPP Constable Ed Sanchuk, it is not known if the dog had died of natural causes and had been tossed into the river or if there might be a case of animal cruelty involved with the dog’s death.
The dog had no collar or tags, and authorities described him as being medium sized with reddish-brown fur. The dog’s sex nor breed could be determined.
“Is this animal cruelty? We need to piece it together. We want to identify the dog and its owner,” stated Sanchuk.
