Wysox, PA (WBNG Binghamton) Burned dog remains were found on a Susquehanna riverbank in the Northern Tier. Now, the Bradford County Humane Society is investigating.

The burned carcass was found last Wednesday at the Wysox boat launch along the Susquehanna River.

The Humane Society sent the remains and other evidence from the scene to a forensics lab.

Investigators are trying to figure out whether the dog was burned alive or already dead when someone set fire to it.

If it's found that the act was malicious, the person responsible faces criminal charges.

Right now, the Bradford County Humane Society is trying to follow up on leads. It says tips can be kept confidential. If you think you can help, call (570) 888-4763.
