    Authorities are investigating a case of animal cruelty after a dead dog was discovered wrapped in a tarp in a parking lot in North Attleboro, Massachusetts earlier in the week.

    Officials with the MSPCA-Angell said the female German Shepard was discovered Monday in the parking lot of Ruth Rhind recreational park on Huntsbridge Road.

    Authorities believe the sable colored dog is between 5- and 8-years-old.

    The dog was laying on a sheet and comforter and covered with a gray lightweight plastic tarp.
