THE RSPCA is appealing for information after a dead dog was found in a skip in Barrow-In-Furness.

The sad discovery was found by workmen on Monday 12 October who were renovating a nearby shop in Dalton Road.

The dog is a white and grey female staffy or bulldog type who was found in a black wheelie suitcase which had been dumped inside the skip. The dog, who was microchipped, is called Cody but the other details are unknown.

RSPCA inspector Martyn Fletcher, who is investigating, said: “This must have been a very distressing discovery for the members of the public who found this poor dog. The skip was empty before the weekend so Cody must have been put there some time over the weekend.

“The poor dog had facial injuries and blood around her face with a towel wrapped around her.

“If anyone saw anything, or has any information about this please contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 12 8018.”
