Dead Dog Found In Sack By Clean-Up Volunteers

Monday April 7 2014

VOLUNTEERS who were cleaning up fly-tipping were horrified to find a dead dog in a sack.

The Friends of Elsecar Park also found remains of rabbits and pheasants in the garbage which had been tossed down a small ravine on the reservoir side of the park near the far end of the dam wall on Water Lane.

Chairwoman Linda Webster said the dead dog had been placed in the sack and then dumped.

"You can imagine the stench," she added. "We had a clear-up about six months ago and this is what we come back to find in what is a lovely little woodland area.

"How people can do something like this is really just beyond me. We are surrounded by beautiful nature and they just want to destroy it."

That is awful how can any one dump a animal and leave it to rot. What if a child found the bag and opened it . I really hope the culprit is found .

Fly tipping is wrong on so many levels and blights so many beautiful areas and risks the health and well being of our children, pets and wildlife. As for the dead dog, we shouldn't jump to the conclusion that "some wrong un" has done it (sad sign of the times)....awful though it is, it could well be some poor soul whose faithful friend passed away and they had no garden to bury it in and couldn't afford to have it disposed of by proper means....or it could just be that i haven't yet lost all faith in my fellow man...
