Dog found dead in North Stonington snowbank


NORTH STONINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — The picture of a dog found dead in a snowbank on North Stonington’s on Wyassup Road is circulating, and has many upset. People in the town are trying to help identify the animal and find out who it belongs to.

“I think it’s horrible to see a dog just dumped like that,” said North Stonington resident Brett Mastroianni. “I have a German Shepard, so it struck home when I saw that.”

Right now it is not known what happened to the dog. The more pressing question may be who left it in the snow.

“It was surprising that one picture sent so many people in an uproar, but it’s totally understandable,” said Mastroianni. “It’s a despicable way to treat an animal.”

“That’s really disrespectful to the animal and to its memory,” said Gloria Chipman of Stonington.

Chipman considers dogs part of the family. She hasn’t see the picture and doesn’t want to, but she does want to see the person who left the dog there identified.

“I most definitely do, and I hope they get charges pressed on them and proper actions taken,” said Chipman.

Animal control is now investigating.

The woman who posted the pictures of the dog has gotten a lot of messages on Facebook. While many people, like her, want to find out who would have left a dog there, other messages haven’t been so nice, which is why we’re not linking to that page.
