Cyclists Heartbroken Over Dog Crying Next To Bag

Paul Skinner and his friend were cycling along a road in England. They immediately noticed a small spaniel on the side of the road that looked like it was crying next to a plastic bag. The men took a closer look at the bag and were heartbroken by what they found.

Paul said, “We spotted on the verge something that looked like a dead bird, but as we passed it, it moved. It was a small spaniel without a collar. We looked around in case anyone was in trouble. It was set back quite a long way from the road.”

Paul continued to describe the bag by saying, “The dog was on its own, sitting licking the contents of a fish and chips carrier bag. The bag contained four dead pups. It was heartbreaking. She had tears in her
eyes.”

The men immediately called the police, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSCPA), and a local greyhound sanctuary, who eventually came to rescue the dog. Once the veterinarians at the RSPCA took a look at the mother, they found her to be approximately three-years-old and named her Carly. The vet said she looked to be in good health.

Mick Fern, Kennel manager at Fen Bank Greyhound Sanctuary, attempted to resuscitate the puppies with no success. Fern said, “Sometimes a puppy can give the appearance of being dead, but can be revived if you can warm them up. Their mother was staying with them, come what may. It was a very sad scene.”

In their investigation, the mother's microchip led back only to the original breed. Inspector Becky Harper said, “It is a terribly upsetting incident. It looks like this little dog has been cruelly dumped along with her newborn pups. We would like to thank the cyclist who found the dog and raised the alarm and to Fen Bank Greyhound Sanctuary who got her to the vets.”
