VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTVR) -- Virginia Beach police are looking for the person who placed a dog in a bag and put it inside a dumpster.

A man found the dog while dropping off recyclables earlier off this week. He took the dog to a veterinarian who had to put it down.

Vets believe the dog was at least ten years old and had one of its eyes surgically removed.

Police are hoping by releasing pictures of the dog, it will help them track down the owner.
