sheriff-cruiserCHARLOTTE, Mich. — Investigators are asking for public help in finding out who dumped the bodies of three dogs into a bulk trash bin behind a shoe store.

The carcasses were apparently put in the bin behind the Payless Shoe Store on Packard Highway some time between January 8 and January 12, said the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office in a release.

It is believed the animals were already dead, possibly frozen to death, before being put in the bin.

The sheriff’s office provided a description of the animals: one black and tan shepherd mix about 65 pounds with a pink collar; one black short-haired mix breed of about 40 pounds, wearing a pink collar; one black and white border collie type long-haired dog with no collar.

If you have information, contact the Eaton County Animal Control at 517-543-5755, ext. 1, or the Crime Tip Line at 517-543-5433 or at

    To the monster who did this: I wish complete torture on you! I hope the law catches you, makes you pay and if you evade the authorities, I hope someone catches you and does the same thing to you that you did or allowed to happen to those three precious animals who more than likely looked to you for love, comfort, and safety!
    You are a parasite! I hope you see their precious faces every minute of your living days! May the devil reserve a seat for you in Hell when your time comes!

    im not even going to click on this story it makes me sick that someone would do this. Its probably that lady that has 30 dogs in a grand rapids home that hired and fired that dog sitter who discovered that the dogs were actually fighting with each other in a home which is conveniently located in the only township that doesnt have a dog ordinance.
