Pit bull puppy rescued after being thrown from moving vehicle

An animal control officer rescued a pit bull thrown from a car in East Brookfield this morning, and said it appeared that the animal had been used for dogfighting.

Joseph Blancato Sr. was walking a dog from the town’s Second Chance Animal Center when he saw someone throw “a little pitty” from a moving vehicle on Howe Street, said Sheryl Blancato, his wife, who is also an animal control officer in the town.
