Emaciated puppy left for dead in plastic bin

An animal cruelty investigation is underway following the disturbing discovery of an emaciated puppy who was left for dead inside of a plastic bin. According to CBS Baltimore, the 10-week-old puppy was found in Columbia, Maryland, on March 25.

The Howard County Animal Control was alerted to the cruel situation by a good Samaritan who found the blue container in a grassy area of a neighborhood on Braeburn Road, reported WJLA News. The brindle pit bull mix puppy showed obvious signs of severe neglect, including being malnourished, missing fur and having open sores on his body.

The puppy was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital for care – the pup, dubbed “Eddy,” is responding well to treatment. According to a press release from animal control, the shelter has already received requests to adopt the dog once he completes his lengthy recovery process.

Investigators are very interested in obtaining any possible information about the dog’s owner and/or the person who discarded him. Anyone with information is urged to call Animal Control at 410-313-2780 or email animalcontrol@howardcountymd.gov.

      Yes they cherie,,, more so then, i could have ever imagined untill the internet. I used to hear a story of abused animals every now and then growing up but, always thought , no way. People or someone wouldnt or couldnt be that cruel… but, since the internet omg it just makes me so sick to my stomach and furious that i want to hurt these people. And, even more furious because they get away with it.. I just pray that God will punish them all and, if i could please be there to watch.

    Prayers for Eddy, these stories keep getting worse, and the vile monsters that do these despicable deeds seem to be multiplying. People need to start turning these vermin in and they need to be punished! This needs to stop and the only way it will is if the ones doing it are found and punished!

    The pus filled maggot who did this to Eddy needs a massive, severe and lethal dose of street justice and I hope they get it. Eddy deserves a safe loving home.
