TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Investigators say a man who tried to abandon six puppies by zipping them inside a suitcase and leaving it outside an Ohio business was charged after authorities found he'd left the luggage tag with his contact information attached.
A Toledo Area Humane Society officer filed two counts of abandonment Tuesday against the Toledo man. He's accused of leaving the canvas bag of puppies and their mother next to a trash bin behind a business. Authorities say he was moving and had tried to sell the puppies.
The Blade newspaper reports that the Lucas County Dog Warden's office picked up the bag of six puppies and their mother, an English bulldog mix, on April 4.
Passers-by had found the bag and released the animals to wait for the warden's office.
