On Feb. 19, 2014, a 3- to 4-year-old pit bull was thrown from the back seat driver’s side window of a dark-colored 4-door pickup truck near the Mastic Beach Post Office in Long Island, New York. The dog attempted to chase after his owners, who discarded him as garbage and drove away, and fortunately, witnesses stopped to help the injured pet.
