Dead dog found dumped in graveyard bin by ‘very distressed’ passer-by

A dog's dead body shocked a cemetery visitor as they walked past a bin where it had been dumped.

Animal welfare chiefs have launched an investigation into where the female terrier had come from and who chose to discard her so carelessly.

The Scottish SPCA says they received a call from a 'very distressed' bypasser who discovered the poor pooch on Monday.

Charity staff took the animal from at the Cemetery Lodge in Kilsyth, North Lanarkshire to check for a microchip and trace down her owners, the Daily Record reports.

However, the cream-coloured dog had not been chipped, leading to the SPCA issuing a plea to the public for information that could help track down those responsible.

SPCA charity warned it "is not the proper way" to dispose of a deceased animal.

The charity has urged anyone with information to come forward.,

A statement read: "We are appealing for information after the body of a dog was found at Cemetery Lodge, Howe Road, Kilsyth on Monday 16 August.

"We were alerted to the incident after a member of the public found the deceased female dog in a bin."

She went on: "The dog is an older female and we think is a Lhasa apso or similar small terrier type. She is cream in colour and was not microchipped or wearing a collar when she was found.

"We’d like to find the owner of this dog and find out how she came to be in the bin at the cemetery. This is not the proper way to dispose of the body of an animal who has passed away.

"If anyone has any information on this incident they can contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
