A cooler with a dead dog inside was found floating in the Long Island Sound on Thursday evening.
According to the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals, a Smithtown bay constable found a dead dog inside a soft-sided cooler floating in the Sound about 1/4 mile west of Cranes Neck and north of Sunken Meadow State Park.
The dog was a brown female pit bull approximately two or three years old. The dog had no tags but had a blue nylon leash, and SCPA officials said there were no visible signs of trauma or scarring.
