The Pennsylvania PSPCA is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for the death of multiple dogs found stuffed in garbage bags in South Philadelphia.
The remains of six male adult pitbull dogs were found in several trash bags on the railroad tracks near 26th Street and Washington Avenue by PSPCA Humane Officers late last week.
The animals appeared to have been killed with the last 24 hours of being discovered. The dogs all had extensive injuries and wounds.
"Until we have more details, we don't want to speculate on the cause of the death," said Bengal. "But we do know that these animals did not die of natural causes. We urge anyone with information about how these dogs died or who placed them in that area to contact us."
Anyone with information in this case should call the Pennsylvania SPCA's Anti-Cruelty hotline at 1-866-601-SPCA.

Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours later this afternoon.
It's still muggy out there. Things start to change tomorrow afternoon, as the rain clears out, and much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
