This story is heartbreaking and disturbing, but hopefully the 6 puppies thrown in a Massachusetts River will survive and the person responsible will be brought to justice. PETA is offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the capture of this cruel individual.

A man kayaking found the newborn puppies in a bag on Sunday and police are now looking for the culprit.  Blackstone River in Uxbridge, MA is about 2 hours east of Albany, but it's worth sharing this story with anyone you know in Massachusetts so this sick and deranged individual can be brought to justice.

“If you have any information that could lead us to the low life that could commit such a heinous act, contact Officer Benjamin Smoot at Uxbridge PD,” the police wrote in a Facebook post.

Anyone with information can call (508) 278-7755.

“The puppies are currently being kept together and are being cared for by a professional until they are able to be adopted,” said an Uxbridge Police rep.
