Pit bull puppies found in Yonkers Dumpster

Two young pit bull puppies are fighting for their lives after they were discovered in a Dumpster at a Yonkers mall.

Yonkers police say that construction workers at the Cross County Shopping Center discovered the two-month-old puppies earlier this week.

The dogs were taken to a local veterinarian, who says that the dogs are suffering from Parvo, an intestinal virus, and that it's likely that the dogs' owner knew they were infected and didn't want to get them treatment.

The dogs are now in the care of a doctor.
