A sanitation worker had just thrown a garbage bag onto his truck when he heard a loud, pitiful cry. Startled, he grabbed the bag and opened it, and found another garbage bag that was completely sealed. When he opened the second bag, he discovered a tiny, 4-week-old puppy.
“Whoever left her there obviously meant for her to die because she was going to suffocate being inside the other bag that was completely sealed,” Jessie Pena, vice president of Redland Rock Pit Abandoned Dogs Project in Miami, told The Dodo. “I don’t think it was that long because she was still alive, and she was crying and making noises.”
