Dog had bits of metal in stomach

Posted: Updated:

A dead dog found in a garbage bag in Acushnet during a snow storm starved to death, animal control officers said Tuesday.

The Boston Animal Rescue League said the female pit bull had bits of metal in her stomach, indicating she was foraging for food.

The 3-year-old dog was dumped in a garbage bag near a bridge on River Street in March. Officials said the dog weighed about half what it should have. There were also signs of abuse.

Acushnet Animal Control is offering a $2,600 reward for information about the dog.
