Dog Found in Trash in Southeast
An injured dog with a trash bag fastened around its body by duct tape was found last week in a trash receptacle in Southeast Washington, the Washington Humane Society said. On Friday, a woman spotted the dog's head protruding from the bag and called the society.
A Humane Society officer cut off the bag and took the dog to a veterinary hospital. A society spokeswoman said the dog might have been discarded after defeat in an illegal dog fight.
