Officials in Sacramento, California, are hopeful that someone will come forward to shed light on a disturbing discovery made in early August. As reported by KCRA News, someone dumped a green trash bin in a south Sacramento neighborhood – the trash container had six dead puppies inside.

The older Sacramento County trash can was found on August 4 in the 2400 block of Wacker Way in south Sacramento – the puppies inside are described as black and white “pit bull type” pups between the age of four and five months. Surveillance video in the area reveals that the can was left in the neighborhood on August 1, reports CBS Sacramento.

    I can’t believe how cruel people can be to helpless animals…… Whoever abandoned these precious little treasures to die in a trash dumpster is Pure Evil and will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty……..

    Poor precious little treasures who died, you never had a chance to live, love, and be loved……. I hope your murderers are found and locked up forever…….

    Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and RIP amongst loving friends.
