Tabs

Case

On Friday morning, May 15th, maintenance workers at the Pennswood Apartment complex discovered trash bags containing the carcasses of several domestic animals that had been dumped near a dumpster in the 5300 block of Manayunk Rd.  Examination of the contents of the bags revealed that they contained three pit bulls, two rottweilers, one puppy of undetermined breed and two black cats.  Contrary to some media reports, there were no obvious signs of trauma to the animals but they had been dead for some time and there was significant decomposition.  The Humane Society of Greater Harrisburg is working with the police to determine how the animals died.
