Authorities are investigating after a dead dog that had been stuffed in a lobster crate and weighed down with bricks washed ashore on Long Island, officials say.
The dog was found on a beach along Old Winkle Point Drive in Eaton's Neck Tuesday, according to the Suffolk County SPCA. The organization says the pit bull mix was wearing a collar.
The crate it was stuffed into had been wired shut.
Anyone with information about the dog is asked to call the Suffolk County SPCA at (631) 382-7722.
