We are looking for anyone who may have information on the person who dumped a dog, inside of a trash can, on the side of Cove Rd in Beesleys Point.
The abandoned dog
According to the animal control agency, the deceased dog is a white and tan female which weighed between 35 and 40 pounds. The dog had a broken front leg and other injuries. Evidence was found leading the animal control agency to believe that the dog was still alive when she was placed into the trash container and abandoned.
