It's a white blanket, with multi-colored pinstripes of varying degrees of thickness, and it just may be the link to a Schenectady County animal abuse claim.

Police in Schenectady County wants to know if the blanket in this photo looks familiar.

Have you seen a pattern that looks similar, is it possible that it belonged to someone you know?

If you're pretty confident that you know more about this blanket, contact the Schenectady Police - it may help find the person who discarded the corpse of a dead dog that was found wrapped up in Schenectady's Central Park last week.

According to a locally viral Facebook post by News 10 ABC's Steve Caporrizzo, it appears as though a viewer sent the image to Cap - a known pet lover and advocate for animal rights - in hopes that more people may recognize the patterns on the blanket.
