Dog wrapped in blanket is found in shallow grave

THE RSPCA is appealing for information after the body of a dog was found in a shallow grave in Wirral. The terrier type dog was found by a member of the public, on Thursday, 2 February 2016, in a field in Brimstage Lane. The body had been wrapped in a beige blanket, which had black paws printed on it.  RSPCA inspector Naomi Norris, who is investigating, said:- "Someone had attempted to dig a hole for this dog but it was very shallow. At this stage we don't know how the dog died; it may be that the dog died naturally and someone has attempted to bury the body, however there are traces of blood on the blanket and this does concern us. The dog was not chipped so we have no way of knowing where he came from. Our only chance is if someone recognises the blanket and knows that the person whose blanket it is no longer has their dog. Anyone who has information should contact us in complete confidence on:- 0300 123 8018."

The RSPCA is a charity and we rely on public donations to exist. To assist our inspectors in carrying out their vital work please text:- 'HELP' to 78866 to give ₤3. (Texts cost ₤3 + 1 standard network rate message.)
