A California woman has discovered two dead puppies along a lonely stretch of country road in Dinuba. According to ABC 7 News, Michelle Pattillo found the deceased pups abandoned in large dog food bags in a rural area of Tulare County.
The first abandoned pup was found on June 19 – Pattillo took the puppy’s body back to a friend’s home to give it a proper burial. Days later, she found another deceased puppy in a dog food bag in the same area. Shortly thereafter she found a third bag – torn open and empty.
She fears that the puppies were still alive when someone secured them in the bags. She tells the news agency:
It makes me really angry but then sad for the puppy because my feeling is that puppy was alive when they put it in that bag, or else why would they have tied it?”
But the Tulare County Animal Services facility says that abandoned, deceased animals are not “uncommon.” A spokesperson said:
We tend to not jump directly to conclusions of cruelty or things like that because oftentimes what we find is once we find the owners of these animals, if we are able to, is simply a case of the puppy passed away from parvo,
Finding whoever is responsible for abandoning these deceased pups is nearly impossible.
