    "This is a despicable act of animal cruelty, we want to get the person or persons responsible off the street that would do this kind of act to a defenseless animal," Rich Britton of the SPCA told NBC10.

    It is unknown what breed the dog was.

    Chester County SPCA officials say the dog will be taken to the New Bolton Veterinary Center in Kennett Square for a necropsy on Monday.
