Another dog abused, discarded in trash on North Side

The seemingly routine torture or killing of dogs by unidentified individuals continued this week with the remains of a shot and discarded dog found on the city’s North Side.

An Ohio Avenue couple told police they were out picking up trash at about 5 p.m. Wednesday when they noticed a medium-sized, mixed-breed pit bull stuffed in a blue plastic garbage can. The garbage can had been thrown over a ravine near Ohio Avenue and Tod Lane.

Police arrived at the Ohio Avenue area with a deputy dog warden and humane agent and determined that the dog had been shot once near the left shoulder before being placed in the container. The dog was wearing a collar, but nothing to identify its owner.

Police are investigating that incident and also ask for help from the public to find the person responsible for the death of two puppies.

The German shepherd puppies were found dead around 2 p.m. Monday in a median island on West Federal Street near Western Reserve Transit Authority’s Federal Station, downtown, police said.

The pups had string wrapped around their legs and neck in a manner to suggest the person was intentionally trying to cause pain and suffering to the animals.

The killing of the dogs brought a half-dozen protesters to the downtown area this week. They are hoping for stiffer penalties for some forms of animal abuse.

There is your proof that FRACKING has contaminated the Mahoning Valley water system and is making people go brain dead. What kind of IDIOT would kill an innocent animal and throw them out like trash???
