An investigation was underway in Pennsylvania's Lackawanna County after officials say a dead dog was found in a backpack.

Archbald police said a man walking his dog made a gruesome discovery just feet off a path inside Ed Staback Regional Park

Police said after his dog ran up to a backpack, the man opened it up and found a dead dog inside.

Police said the dog was small with black, brown, and possibly white fur, and it was wrapped in a pillowcase before being put into the pack.

Lackawanna County Humane Officer Laura Vitali was called in to help with the investigation.

“We can see by looking at the dog that there was definitely neglect. There’s severe matting on the dog,” said Vitali. “The fur appears in some areas to be white. It’s been yellowed by urine. It could be the extended amount of time it’s been out here, but it only appears to have been here for a week.”

Archbald police said they were working to determine how the dog died and how it got in the park.

Police said the backpack was pink and black and had a pencil case in the front pocket. They were hopeful someone would recognize the pack and call police.

“It’s a defenseless animal. No reason why anyone should do this to any animal,” said Archbald Police Officer Brian Munley. “If they can’t take care of it, by any means, there’s always shelters or other people who will take the animal and give it the love and care that it deserves.”

Vitali said the dog would be taken for a necropsy to determine the cause of death.

So sad :( Nobody deserves that kind of treatment, not man/woman, child or animal. If you can't take care of something, then don't have one.

Hate saying this, but the backpack sounds like it could belong to a child...so some douchebag probably killed/neglected the family dog and then used their kid's backpack to dump it. Hope they find who did it.

At least it wasn't a human baby.

Yeah bullshit. Because all the shelters charge a fee to leave an animal.
Even when you try to do a good deed and drop off a dog you catch running in traffic, they try to guilt you into donating money.

The shelter I worked for accepted animals no questions asked.
