COQUILLE, Ore. (AP) - A pet carrier found floating near a southwest Oregon boat ramp contained three dead puppies.

The Coos County Sheriff's Office says a citizen made the discovery Wednesday at a park in Lakeside. The dogs were believed to be about 3 months old, and were either dachshunds or Chihuahuas.
