When firefighters responded to a fire in northeast Baltimore just after midnight on July 27, they found that someone had apparently put a small terrier mix in a trash bag and then set the bag on fire.

No arrests have been made. 

"This community needs to know whether this dog was dead or alive when he was put in a garbage bag and set on fire, because a dog abuser may be at large and strike again," PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien said in a news release. "PETA urges anyone who has information about who had this dog in their possession and how he died to come forward now."

Anyone with information about this case should call the Baltimore Police Department at 410-396-2400 or toll-free at 1-866-LOCK-UP.
