According to NYS police, the two dogs were thrown out of a moving vehicle in Cortland County.
Troopers patrolling I-81 near Whitney Point noticed a tractor trailer parked in the left lane. As they got closer, they realized the vehicle's door was open and no one was inside. That's when they found the truck driver some distance ahead of the vehicle, carrying a badly injured dog. Another dog was following behind.
The Broome County Humane Society picked up both dogs and nursed them back to health..
Troopers say the truck driver saw a vehicle that looked like an older Dodge Durango slow down, roll down the rear passenger window and throw the dogs out.
