TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Investigators say a man who tried to abandon six puppies by zipping them inside a suitcase and leaving it outside an Ohio business was charged after authorities found he'd left the luggage tag with his contact information attached.
A Toledo Area Humane Society officer filed two counts of abandonment Tuesday against the Toledo man. He's accused of leaving the canvas bag of puppies and their mother next to a trash bin behind a business. Authorities say he was moving and had tried to sell the puppies.
The Blade newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/I1HeeJ) that the Lucas County Dog Warden's office picked up the bag of six puppies and their mother, an English bulldog mix, on April 4.
Passers-by had found the bag and released the animals to wait for the warden's office.
