Crushing

The worst was when I was in 4th grade & someone threw a garbage bag out of their car. Us kids at the school playground ran to see what it was.
It tuned out to be the corpse of a dog that had been crushed in some fashion.
The horrible expression of pain on that animal's face has been imprinted on my memory ever since.

What a horrible story, especially when they saw children around. That is just damn sick. Even if they hit the poor thing they could have pulled it to the curb and called some one to pick it up. I hate for any animals to get mistreated in any way.

I agree with you. It was traumatic enough that I distinctly remember it after 30+ years.

oh.... I see... the person just dumped the body there.... I did not understand well it seems... that's really gross....

What makes you think it was intentional?? You did not see what happened, you just describe the corpse.<br />
Maybe this person had hit it with a car and then picked up the corpse?

True, I'll grant you, but this wasn't an upscale community yet the car was something that was worth more than most of the homes in the area, so I may be theorizing. I just find it unlikely that if it was unintentional a person would just dump it in a poor neighborhood without a by your leave.
