The cruelty that humans inflict on animals disgusts me, but this story is absolutely abhorrent. Some imbecile(s) in New York starved a precious pit bull pup, then stuffed him in a suitcase and left him behind a housing project in the Bronx. Tossed out like a piece of garbage. Luckily, a passerby alerted the police to the 3 year old dog, and he was picked up and transported to the ASPCA for care. He is being given life-saving treatments because he is in such bad condition and was deprived of food and water for an extended period of time before he was discovered.
And the ASPCA has put a bounty on the head of whoever did this by offering a $20,000 reward leading to the arrest of the criminal(s). Anyone with information about who dumped and or harmed the dog was asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS, log onto the Crime Stoppers website, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and enter TIP577.
