Body of dog found in plastic container in lake

Fishermen find body of dog in plastic container in lake

Fishermen enjoying time on Wisconsin’s Okauchee Lake over the holiday weekend made a disturbing discovery. According to Fox 6 News, a plastic container was in the water by some rocks near the lake’s boat launch – fisherman Mike Miller saw the container in the shallow water and went to investigate.

The contents caused Miller to jump back in horror and surprise – inside of the container was a badly decomposed dog whose front legs appeared to be missing. Miller told Fox 6, “It was pretty disturbing, pretty graphic, so I chose to take some pictures and notified police.”

After investigating, the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department located the dog’s owner who informed them that he had tried to inter the dog in the lake several years ago. Miller and the local authorities hope that others will not follow suit because finding the body of a deceased pet is disturbing, to say the least.

    This is NOT how you dispose of your pets body! You bury them or have them cremated! My condolences to Mr Miller, I can’t imagine the horror of finding this!

    The reason most large lakes are banned from allowing people to dispose of pets and human ashes is because they run into or are a part of the drinking water supply for major cities and while it may not be marked as such it’s tributary or storm drains or overflow system ties directly into the supply
    And yes I know that didn’t make much sense but the human body contains 87 per cent water the rest is minerals inactive sediment the same with most domestic animals if it were one or two hundred no problem but it runs in the thousands large enough to ruin piping and screening drains it would be a shock to find a pet interred in a cooler and my question is where are the dogs front legs ?

    Sounds to me like a case of animal abuse – this dog did not lose his legs in a plastic container. I vote this so called ‘owner’ be put in line for a trip to the wood chipper – I HATE animal abusers.
