Cops are hunting for the cruel suspect that taped a Corgi mix inside a box and abandoned her in a Porta-Potty at a Massachusetts construction site.
The terrified dog was found on Thursday after an unidentified bystander heard her barking inside the portable toilet at the site at 19 Colchester Street in Brookline and called the police.
When police found her at around 10pm that evening, the five-year-old dark-colored Corgi mix had managed to free her head and front legs from the box but was still partially trapped.
She was taken to the nearby Angell Animal Medical Center, which is part of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPACA), for evaluation.
‘The dog is unharmed and stable, but frightened — and is now resting at the MSPCA’s Jamaica Plain adoption center,’ the MSPCA-Angell said on Facebook.
A 22-lb female Corgi-mix, believed to be about five years old, was found at 10pm last night taped inside a box which was placed inside a Porta Potty at a construction site located at 19 Colchester Street in Brookline.
Officers on the scene brought the dog—who appeared to have managed to free her two front legs from the box– to Angell Animal Medical Center, where she was evaluated by the veterinary staff. The dog is unharmed and stable, but frightened—and is now resting at the MSPCA’s Jamaica Plain adoption center, where she will be held for a mandatory seven-day stray hold and, upon expiration of that hold, the MSPCA will place her into a new home.
The box in which the dog was trapped was for an O-Cedar EasyWring mop and bucket. The dog was not wearing a collar or identification tags, nor was she microchipped, which makes it all the more difficult to find an owner.
The Brookline Police Dept. is leading the investigation, and anyone who has any information is urged to call the Brookline Police Dept.’s tip line at 617-730-2730 or the MSPCA’s Law Enforcement dept. at 800-522-6008.
