Rotterdam police are asking for the public's help after a gruesome discovery.
A passerby noticed what turned out to be the remains of a small dog sticking out of a black garbage bag at the intersection of Burdeck Street and North Thompson Street Tuesday afternoon. Further examination found multiple signs that the dog, possibly a Shih Tzu or Lhasa Apso, was severely abused. The dog was tan and white, 2 to 3 years old, and weighed 15 to 20 pounds.
Anyone with information should call Rotterdam detectives at 518-355-7397.
