Dogs burned, dumped on road

HANCOCK - Two fatally burned dogs - one a barely recognizable puppy in a garbage bag - were dumped Sunday night in front of the Stine Road home of a Hancock firefighter.
Harry Sloan said both dogs were dead when he went down to investigate around 9:15 p.m.
After seeing the carcasses, Sloan called the Maryland State Police and later notified the Washington County SPCA.
"Trooper First Class C.J. Barnard came out and took pictures,'' Sloan said. No report was available this morning.
SPCA Director Shelly Moore said this morning that her agency was notified - by telephone and by e-mail - and that an officer had been sent to investigate.
