Woman finds live dog inside trash bag in Glasgow

Update: The woman who found the dog believes it was dumped there in the garbage bag, however, animal control officials cannot concretely confirm that. Anyone with information should contact animal control.

A dog is recovering in Barren County after being found stuffed in a trash bag on the side of the road. 

According to a Facebook post by the woman who found the dog, Karen Smith Clark, she was out walking Sunday with her own dog on Peninsula Road in Glasgow when she noticed the trash bag. She quickly discovered the dog inside. Clark went home and got some food and water for the animal and contacted the sheriff’s office.

The dog is now recovering at the Barren River Animal Welfare Association.
