LOMA LINDA, Calif. (AP) — Southern California authorities say a freezer donated to a thrift shop contained an unwelcome surprise — a dead dog.
Jodi Miller of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says investigators were called to the Re:Live Thrift in Loma Linda Tuesday night.
The San Bernardino Sun says two men scavenging in the area opened the freezer and found blood and a plastic-wrapped object inside.
Miller tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that the foul-smelling package turned out to contain a dead dog.
Miller says it's not the right way to dispose of an animal — but it's not a crime.
