Puppy abandoned behind dumpster in Wisconsin

An injured puppy is under the care of vets after being rescued from a garbage bin.

A restaurant manager in Wisconsin says he heard whimpering as he dumped boxes and found the puppy in a black plastic bag.

Manager Bob Lamore followed the man that dumped the puppy on a number of surveillance cameras, showing him enter the planeview store and purchase a few items at the register.

Nearly an hour and a half after the events on the tape, another employee heard an overheated puppy whimpering out back.

"I wanted to kill somebody. I can't believe people can do that," said restaurant manager Mike Thorp.

Thorp found the puppy in a black bag behind this dumpster.

A garbage truck came by just minutes after.

Lamore says, "It hurt. It was emotional. We all were. Somebody that can do that to something so innocent is so wrong."

Lamore snapped photos of the suspect and his truck, hoping someone will help identify him.

As for the puppy, she's getting care at an animal hospital.

Veterinarian, Dr. Kim Everson says, "It became apparent that I think she has an injury to her back end, which is causing the disfigurement, and I think pain, too."

Dr. Everson says it's a lot of work caring for a puppy this young, especially because her condition continues to change.

"I think it's very fortunate that she was found. I think she has a pretty good chance," Everson said.

For now, police are asking anyone who can identify the man or the truck to contact them.
