BROOKHAVEN, Miss. — An animal control officer in Mississippi responded to a heartbreaking scene Monday morning.

Sharon Norton of the Brookhaven (Miss.) Police Department posted on Facebook photos of an abandoned puppy curled up in a chair alongside a rural road.

Norton said the puppy was “slowly starving to death because it was afraid to leave the chair to find food.”

“To the person that dumped this chair, your puppy was waiting for you to come back, slowly starving to death because it was afraid to leave the chair to find food. shame on you for doing this to this puppy.. but one day Karma will meet up with you,” Norton said in the Facebook post.

WLBT, the NBC affiliate in Jackson, Mississippi, reported the dog is being taken care of by the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League, and then it will be placed up for adoption.
