Authorities said an Orange County man set his 1-year-old Lab out as trash earlier this week.

Dillinger’s owner put the canine in his crate, covered him with a blanket and placed him by the curb to be picked up with the rest of his garbage, officials said.

“He had been hit by a car at least 30 days prior to that and never taken to a vet,” said Jessica Chapman, a volunteer at Pet Rescue by Judy. “So, I don’t know if they just couldn’t afford him anymore.”
