According to Saturday’s KWQC News, a disturbing discovery was made at a Clinton, Iowa, residence this week. The body of a deceased dog was discovered in the trash outside of a home in the 200 block of 5th Avenue North and an alive, albeit starved, dog was also found.
Few details about the heartbreaking discovery have been released. According to the local news source, a local dog breeder by the name of Robert Edens was alerted to the presence of the dogs by an area veterinarian. Edens and another breeder visited the residence on 5th Avenue North and found the dog in the trash, as well as the emaciated dog.
The situation was reported to the Clinton Police Department, which has not commented on the case. The surviving dog was taken to a veterinarian for treatment and released – exactly who the dog is being cared for at this time was not stated.
It is unclear if the residence where the dogs were found was occupied, or vacant.
