The Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RISPCA) performed a necropsy on the dog’s remains and found that it had been shot multiple times.

This deceased dog was one of three to wash ashore within the span of a month. The RISPCA became involved in the investigation after the third was found.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Special Agent Earl Newman at Earl.Newman@RISPCA.org or by calling Barrington police at (401) 437-3940.
