Boston Animal Control is caring for a poodle mix in bad shape that was found in a bucket Tuesday night at the Court Square Press building at 9 West Broadway - as inspectors try to find whoever was responsible for the dog's condition.
ISD reports this "poor little guy" had severely matted hair, skin wounds and an infestation of both fleas and maggots, "indicating that this dog has been in this horrific state for some time."
Animal Control is working with building management to see if surveillance video might show who dropped the dog off in the bucket with a blanket atop what appears to be kibble. If the dog, temporarily named Matt, looks familiar, contact Animal Control at 617-635-5348.
