Officials with the Boynton Beach Police Department say they have launched an animal cruelty investigation, after finding an abused dog in a cardboard box outside an elementary school earlier this week.
The animal later died from its injuries.
Police said an officer responded to a call about a dog in the parking lot of Rolling Green Elementary on Northeast 26th Avenue on Wednesday. The French bulldog could barely walk and foamed at the mouth.
The officer took the dog to a vet, where the staff discovered that the dog had a large wound in her chest near her front leg and also showed obvious signs of neglect.
In addition, the dog suffered from seizures and brain swelling and died during the night, according to police.
Investigators believe the spayed French bulldog was approximately two years old.
It did not have a collar or microchip.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Animal Cruelty investigator Liz Roehrich at (561)742-6210, or to make an anonymous call to CrimeStoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
