Pet shop owner finds dead pit bulls in Dumpster
A pet shop owner in Mastic says he found two dead pit bulls in a Dumpster outside his store yesterday.
Police say Alex Fabiano, who owns Animal Hut, was throwing away trash when he saw a black construction bag. Fabiano cut it open to find the remains of two pit bulls that appeared to have suffered abuse, authorities say.
Fabiano told investigators the dogs were wrapped in newspaper and did not look decomposed.
In addition to police, the Suffolk County SPCA is investigating the incident.
