Chihuahua rescued from urine-soaked bags in New Jersey

A Chihuahua was discovered by a dog owner in New Jersey trapped in urine-soak bags in what a shelter has called a “blatant act of animal cruelty.”

The man was walking along railroad tracks in Vineland on Saturday when his dog alerted him to the bag, the South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter said.

“He saw the bag move and heard something inside. He immediately picked up the bag and brought it to the shelter. Inside was a young female Chihuahua,” the shelter said on Facebook.

Late this morning, a man walking his dog behind Gerresheimer’s Glass (along the railroad tracks at 537 Christel Avenue in Vineland) noticed a bag on the ground when his dog was reacting to it. He saw the bag move and heard something inside. He immediately picked up the bag and brought it to the shelter. Inside was a young female Chihuahua. She and the bags she was in were soaked with urine. Coco was visibly shaken and lucky to be alive. Coco will be evaluated by the vet this afternoon. This horrific act of cruelty has been reported to the Vineland

“She and the bags she was in were soaked with urine. Coco was visibly shaken and lucky to be alive,” it said, adding that “this horrific act of cruelty has been reported to the Vineland Police Department.”

Footage posted by the shelter shows a disoriented Coco stumbling out after being freed by a worker using scissors to cut through three separate bags.

“We’re so thankful for the outpouring of support for Coco! She is not available for adoption at this time and is resting comfortably in a foster home,” the shelter said in an update.
