Dead Puppies Found In Trash Bag Behind Revere Gas Station

REVERE (CBS) – Police are investigating the death of two puppies that were found in a trash bag behind a Revere gas station.

Revere police said Sunday the dogs were found behind Sunoco on North Shore Road.

A landscaper told police about the trash bag on Saturday night when he returned to the business to pick up bags of leaves he left there the previous day. The landscaper told police one of the bags felt heavier than expected, and he found the dogs after looking inside.

Lt. Amy O'Hara said the dogs appear to be between six and eight weeks old and are pit bull mixes. She added that there are no security cameras pointed behind the building where the dogs were found.

"Obviously it's difficult when you see these types of photographs or respond to this type of scene," said O'Hara.

"So it's important to us and everyone else to find out exactly what happened."

Both of the small dogs, one black and one brown, have cropped tails. The Animal Rescue League took both as a part of the investigation.

Police are asking residents for help as they investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call the Revere Police Department at (781) 656-1114.
