The body of a dog who was strangled to death was found in a dumpster behind an elementary school in Richmond, Virginia. The Richmond Animal Care and Control agency reached out to the public on Wednesday with more information about the cruelty case:
We are very sad to share another abuse case that we need your help with. On Friday 7/26 around 2:30pm, RACC Officers recovered the body of a 3 year old, black and white, spayed female pit bull from a dumpster behind John B. Cary Elementary (3021 Maplewood Ave).
According to the animal welfare agency, the dog appears to have been strangled with a hunter green slip lead leash, and they believe that she was dumped within an hour of when her body was found.
The animal control agency is hopeful that someone in the area saw something and can help provide a lead in the case. The shelter writes:
There were many families around the park and school playground at that time and we are hopeful that someone saw something. PLEASE call or text Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000 if you have any information. No piece of information or recollection is insignificant.
