Jamestown Police are investigating the death of a dog found hanging from a tree Monday night.
Investigators say a passerby noticed the dog in a wooded area Hallock Street near Palmer Street and called police.
The dog was a brown and white pitbull. It was hung by a red leash and blue nylon rope.
Detectives believe the dog was hanging for some time because of the state of decomposition.
Police are now trying to find the dog's owner. Anyone with information should call Jamestown Police at (716) 483-7537.
