Authorities in Cape May County are searching for the person responsible for dumping a dog in a trash bag on a road in Goshen.

Middle Township Police say they responded to Bucks Avenue in Goshen on Tuesday and found a dog, described as an older brown-colored female lab mix, was deceased and discarded on the shoulder of the road in a trash bag.

It was just two weeks ago that authorities were investigating another incident where an abused dog was found in a trash can on the side of Cove Road in Beesleys Point. The dog in this case later died.

Anyone with information regarding the incident in Middle Township is asked to contact police at (609) 465-8700.
