New Pitsligo, Aberdeenshire – In what appears to have been an act of cruelty, a blind, undernourished dog – in pain, with decaying teeth and riddled with cancer – was left on the side of the road to die in Aberdeenshire. The golden retriever was rushed to a vet but had to be put down soon after he was rescued on 2 August. According to news reports, most of his conditions could have been treated if he had received immediate veterinary care.

PETA is offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the dog’s suffering.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the SSPCA on 0300 999 999.
