The RSPCA say they are shocked by the discovery of a dead dog dumped under a manhole cover in Cheltenham.

The grim discovery was made on Friday 30th April.  

RSPCA inspector Phil Mann got a call reporting a male bull terrier dog which was found down a manhole by Edwards Wilson House on Princess Elizabeth Way.  

Phil told Heart the find was harrowing:

It is believed the dog was dumped 24/48 hours previously. As the dog was microchipped, inspectors know he was named Buddy, but his owners records were not up to date.

The RSCPA say it is a criminal offence to cause unnecessary suffering to any animal under the Animal Welfare Act 2006.  

Anyone with information about any of these incidents can call the RSPCA national cruelty and advice line on 0300 1234 999.  All calls will be treated in confidence.
