“Come on people think, somebody know’s who this is! Somebody who is hosting dog fights & who throws the dogs that lose or the bait dogs; out like garbage! Any information you may have, please tell the Acushnet police or the Acushnet Animal Control.”
According to officials, the dog, a 4-year-old female pitbull, was found after a witness reported seeing a white male on the Slocum Street bridge push a baby stroller with a black plastic bag in it, then throw the black plastic bag over the bridge and into the Acushnet River.
Police say the bag did not go into the river but landed on the bank, where the dead pitbull was found inside.
According to a Acushnet Animal Control officer, the injuries on the dog consisted of dog bites, appearing as though the dog was being used in dog fights.
Police say the suspect is again a white male, and is in his mid- to late-twenties, and was last see running into New Bedford from Slocum Street and then south on River Road.
Acushnet police are asking anyone with any information about the owner of the dog to contact them.
