Dead dog dumped at animal shelter, thief takes donations

OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) - The Osceola City Animal Shelter is searching for a suspect that left a dead dog in front of their building.

An employee found the dead animal in a trash bag wrapped in a sweater, according to Osceola Animal Control Officer Paula Edwards.

She said the suspect also stole several donated cans from in front of the facility.

The shelter collects the cans to raise money for spaying and neutering funds.

"It takes about a year to fill the big bin up," Edwards said. "I just don't understand why someone would do this."

Edwards believes whoever did this is linked to both crimes.

She said anyone with information should contact the shelter at (870) 622-0739 or the Osceola Police Department at (870) 563-5213.
