> After recovering the bodies police where then called to the Fort Pitt Bridge for additional bodies of deceased animals. Per soruces the animals were headed for cremation when a vehicle carrying the dead animals lost its load at several locations. The bodies were claimed by the mortuary the company has been contacted for comment as of right now it appears that this was an accident.

Oh wow, that would suck. I just picked up my dogs ashes. I can’t imagine being told they didn’t have his ashes because he fell off a truck.

I'm really sorry for your loss

Thank you so much! He was my buddy for sure. It was unexpected but he lived a long and spoiled life (10 years, which is a lot for a so called “giant” breed.) so we’re concentrating on the positive. We just picked up a new puppy some some of the pain has been replaced with pandemonium!

How does the vehicle just casually lose its load in several places and just give zero F's about it. I'd be rising hell if my dog was one of them.

Thanks for the update. She told me that and I was hoping it wasn’t malicious.

I have a friend who works for animal control. He thinks they were on the way to be cremated and fell out of the transport

Your wife showed you a Facebook post and you ran to reddit for confirmation? Is there another source for this?

It’s exactly what I did. But I didn’t run I remained in the prone position and asked here.

We saw a dead dog on the Fort Pitt Bridge this morning around 8:45. We called animal control to report it

I saw the same and my wife convinced me it was clothes or rags or something, ‘cause how the heck would a dog get up on the bridge. Fort Pitt outbound, at ~8:45 AM.

There is an animal crematorium on 65 in Bellevue. I wonder if that is where they were headed?
