In­jured puppy left in trash

Calgary Sun - - NEWS - — post­media

the cal­gary Hu­mane So­ci­ety is look­ing for help from the pub­lic to iden­tify the owner of an aban­doned dog found in a dump­ster.

the mixed-breed puppy was found in a garbage con­tainer near an­der­son road and 24th Street S.W. at ap­prox­i­mately 6 a.m. on tues­day.

the an­i­mal was found alive but in “se­vere med­i­cal dis­tress” and may have been in the dump­ster for a long as 48 hours, the hu­mane so­ci­ety said.

the ap­prox­i­mately eight- to 10-week old fe­male dog was eu­th­a­nized at the di­rec­tion of vet­eri­nar­i­ans.

“re­gard­less of the source of this dog’s cat­a­strophic in­juries, dis­card­ing this vis­i­bly in­jured puppy in a dump­ster was a cal­lous crim­i­nal act,” said brad Ni­chols, the se­nior man­ager of an­i­mal cru­elty in­ves­ti­ga­tions at the cal­gary Hu­mane So­ci­ety.

“this puppy de­serves jus­tice and we hope the pub­lic can help us serve just that by pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion to­ward the iden­tity of the in­di­vid­ual re­spon­si­ble.”

Peace of­fi­cers are ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion about sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity in the area between Oct. 8 and 10, or in­for­ma­tion about the iden­tity of the dog, the owner or dis­card­ing party, to con­tact the cal­gary Hu­mane So­ci­ety.

it’s be­lieved the dog was pos­si­bly a Labrador/aus­tralian cat­tle cross. the puppy was white in colour with faint grey spots.
