NEW HAVEN, Conn (WTNH) — Police responded to the 100 block of Lake Street in New Haven over the weekend after a caller reported a dead dog left in a crate on the sidewalk.

New Haven police say the crate was bagged with leaves and trash left for trash pickup.

The dog is described as a small “lap-dog”.

Police say there were no noticeable signs of trauma, and believe it’s likely a case of a misinformed citizen, who did not know how to properly deal with the situation.

No one was home inside the residence where the dog was discovered.

Officers are trying to locate the owner of the home and continue to investigate.
