An abandoned puppy could have seen its last days in a dark dumpster, but its life was saved.
CNN affiliate WBAY reports that the pup was found on at the Planeview Truck Stop on Thursday morning in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at 11:25 a.m. An employee heard whimpering and discovered the puppy inside a black plastic bag. The dog has a broken pelvis and will require surgery. It is currently in a vet's care at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society, who has named the pup Hazel.
After employees viewed surveillance video, they saw a man placing an item into the dumpster and walking away with nothing in his hands. The man allegedly responsible is wearing a dark green hat and a white shirt with a gray pattern on it. He was also driving a dark red semi-truck.
The manager of the convenience store, Bob Lamore, hopes that by releasing photos of the suspect and the truck he was driving, that he can be found. Global Conservation Group, an animal rights organization, announced a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
Anyone with information about the case can contact Winnebago Countywide Crime Stoppers by calling (920) 231-8477 or texting "IGOTYA" and the tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
