Surveillance video shows a man carrying a limp dog, whose body was later found in a Bronx, New York, trash can. As reported by the Bronx Times, the dog might have passed out from heat stroke and the owner may have believed that she was dead before throwing her into a trash can.
Someone told Anthony Logrippo, owner of The Reef Shoppe, that a French bulldog was in a nearby trash receptacle and he rushed to investigate. Logrippo tells the news agency:
This didn’t make sense because the dog had a collar and a leash,” he said. “You can see the dog was trying to get out. It’s just mind-blowing. It’s not right that someone should do this to an animal and go live their normal life.”
The shop owner attempted to contact the owner listed on the dog’s identification tags, but he did not reach anyone. The New York Police Department has been notified about the incident and they are investigating.
