JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A local man found two dogs, injured and tossed into a dumpster outside of a Southside elementary school and now police are trying to find out who did it.

The dogs are 15-month-old pit bulls that Marc Mayoral discovered in a dumpster at Brookview Elementary.

He said he found the dogs because he heard them crying from inside the dumpster.

"Who would do something like that to dogs? You see them all the time out in the street, it's not the dogs, it's the people who treat them," Mayoral said.

Mayoral and a friend called police and reached out to the city's animal shelter where the dogs will be cared for until they are ready for adoption.
