    BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Authorities are seeking the person responsible for the death of a dog left in a carrier outside a Massachusetts animal shelter.

    They're offering a reward of $1000 for information leading to a conviction. The MSPCA says one of its case managers found a female dog in a carrier on the property of the organization in Brockton on Tuesday morning. The dog was "unconscious and foaming at the mouth."

    The 10-pound dog was rushed to an animal hospital in Stoughton but died en route. The organization says the dog's body temperature was at least 110 degrees_the highest their thermometer could go.

    The temperature outside when the brown and white dog was found was in the mid-80s. She had no microchips or ID tags. Animal cruelty is a felony crime in Massachusetts.
