Appeal after dog found in Thetford dustbin
The RSPCA is appealing for information after a dead, emaciated dog was found in a dustbin.
Kerry the greyhound had been left wrapped in a curtain and bed sheet in an unclaimed bin in Arlington Way, Thetford.
The dog was micro-chipped, and while the charity has been able to trace its previous owners it is still hunting for the person responsible for dumping the dog.
RSPCA inspector Nicola Thorne said: “This dog was just skin and bone it was horrifying she was so emaciated.
“I am appalled that someone has let her condition get in such a state and then when the poor dog died they just dumped her in a bin like a piece of rubbish.

“I am following up a number of enquiries, but I would appeal to anyone who has any information regarding this dog, or may know who her last known address. “I am particularly interested to hear from anyone in the St Mary’s Crescent or Bury Road areas of Thetford.”
Kerry was five-years-old, black with a white chest and wearing a yellow collar with her name on it.
