The Calgary Humane Society is asking the public’s help in identifying the owner of a neglected dog.
A male Boston Terrier was found dead in a travel carrier at a hotel in Vista Heights on October 27, according to a release from the Calgary Humane Society.
Video surveillance shows a person taking the carrier out of a vehicle and leaving it by a dumpster near the hotel, stated the release.
The vehicle is described as a light tan or gold four-door sedan of an older year.
Brad Nichols, the senior manager of Cruelty Investigations with the Calgary Humane Society, said in the release that the dog suffered from medical problems that must have been noticed by anyone spending time around the terrier.
“The degree of neglect suffered by this dog prior to its death is criminal in nature,” Nichols said in the release.
“The manner in which this dog was disposed of speaks to the owner’s knowledge and intent. We are hopeful someone recognizes the dog and/or the vehicle and can provide us with information that can lead to justice for this poor dog.”
Anyone with information that may lead to the owner is urged to contact the Calgary Humane Society by calling 403-205-4455 or online through their website.
