Police in Southington, Connecticut, are searching for whoever abandoned a neglected puppy alongside a road in a paper shopping bag. The Southington Police Department posted a photo of the beagle mix pup to social media on Thursday, writing:

On 8/8/2019 at 12:26 PM, Southington Police Department Animal Control responded to the area of Empress Drive/West Center Street on a report of a found dog on the side of the road. Upon arrival a Good Samaritan reported finding a young male beagle mix puppy abandoned inside a paper shopping bag on the side of the road.

The puppy was “very lethargic” when he was found and showed signs of “severe neglect.” The pup has been transferred to a local veterinary clinic for care.

The department is hopeful that someone can provide a tip, writing:

A criminal case for animal cruelty has been initiated. Anyone with information on this puppy is asked to contact Detective James Armack at 860-378-1649 or [email protected].
