The Chautauqua County Humane Society in Jamestown, N.Y. is asking for the public's assistance in finding the person responsible for abandoning a female Chihuahua mix dog along Southwestern Drive in Lakewood the organization announced on Tuesday morning.

Cruelty investigators found the terrified dog in a ditch in a zipped up Coors Light thermal bag. The dog had been trapped in the bag for an extended period of time; feces and urine filled the bag.

The dog is now at the Chautauqua County Humane Society for food, water, and observation.

A discussion on the Facebook page about the tiny dog's discovery revealed the dog's original owner who identified the dog as named Tinkerbell:

"Inez La Unika Yes I'm gonna try to get her back.. these people will be turned into today when there (sp) investigating team calls me. I can't believe they did this to Tinkerbell cuz they were mad at my husband."

There have already been multiple offers to adopt the little dog. Other animal advocates posting on the page were openly appalled at such overt animal cruelty.

A more detailed report will be made as more information becomes available.

The Laws of New York Agriculture and Markets defines aggravated animal cruelty as a felony conviction. Penalties and punishments carry up to two years in prison.
