These are the photos of a poor dog found by a family inside a stone-filled sack at a popular beach resort.
The incident took place in the town of Porec, a popular summer resort on the coast of the Istrian Peninsula in western Croatia, when a young family noticed a large object washed up on the shore.
The anonymous family which reportedly included parents with their young children, approached the sack and were stunned to see a dead dog inside.
According to local media, the mesh bag was tied and a stone weight was found inside, apparently to ensure that the poor canine did not survive.
Images of the dead dog were shared on social media, prompting outrage from netizens and animal lovers.
Netizen ‘Toni Tonkovic’ commented: “I hope from the bottom of my heart that the same fate awaits the person who did this.”
‘Gordana Belavic’ said: “The culprit should be crammed into a bag with a weight and thrown into the sea as well! Anyone who does not love animals is incapable of loving people either.”
‘Ines Backo’ wrote: “What kind of psychopath do you have to be to do such a thing? Awful.”
The police were called to the scene and have confirmed that they are investigating the alleged drowning.
