In Collinsville, Oklahoma, authorities are investigating an animal cruelty case involving an ailing puppy that died from a parasite overload after suffering for days, was discovered stuffed in an old red suitcase and tossed into the woods.
According to Newson6, Collinsville police stated the cocker spaniel mix was already dead before he was placed inside of the suitcase. A necropsy revealed the pup had parasites and that he belonged to a woman who let the dog suffer for four or five days. Susie McConaghie, owner of Paco Paws Rescue, and who also helps out with the city shelter was heartbroken and said she could have helped the puppy and the owner had she known.
Authorities state the owner of the pup had asked two men to bury the dog for her, but instead of doing what she asked, they put the dog’s body in a suitcase and illegally dumped it on city property. It has not been determined by the Rogers County District Attorney if the men or the owner will face charges.
