The Pennsylvania SPCA says the young pit bull was found covered in a towel soaked with lighter fluid. Investigators add, the dog had recently been set on fire.
Agents also found a dead dog in a trash bag a few feet away from the burned dog. It's believed that animal had been there for about a week. A necropsy will be performed on Friday to determine the cause of that dog's death.
Anyone with information on the dogs or who might have dumped the bodies on Tabor Road, is asked to call the PSPCA's confidential cruelty reporting hotline:
