BRYSON CITY, NC (FOX Carolina) -

A dog was found inside a trash bag that had been tossed inside a dumpster in Bryson City on Wednesday night, according to animal advocates.

Dawn Todd, a spokeswoman for Noah's Ark Companion Animal Hospital in Franklin, said a man was putting his trash in the dumpster when he noticed a paw sticking out of a trash bag. She said the man then saw a dog trying to poke its head out of the bag.

Two dogs were found inside the dumpster, according to Todd. She said one of the dogs in the bag was dead, and the other was alive.

The 6-month-old pup, which has been named Bryson after the city where he was found, suffered trauma to his face, Todd said.

Bryson was checked out by veterinarians at the animal hospital and is recovering well, Todd said.

Swain County Sheriff Curtis Cochran said detectives are trying to figure out who hurt the dogs. He said anyone with information about the case should call the sheriff's office at 828-488-0159.
