Philadelphia news, Pennsylvania news.

A small Yorkshire Terrier found in a trash can in Philidelphia, a victim of severe trauma, has died, officials said at the shelter where she died.

"It is with heavy hearts that we share the information that our sweetest Pringles died yesterday," said the Pennsylvania SPCA in a statement. "Although Pringles is no longer with us, our fight to bring him justice continues."

Pringles was found Thursday morning by a passer-by who heard the sound of a wastebasket and began rummaging through garbage cans.

The animal cruelty agents know the owner of the dog and study how she ended up in the garbage.
