Dog lovers raise a £2,000 reward

Animal lovers have raised about £2,200 in reward money to help catch the person who tied a dog to a fence and left it to starve to death.

The female mastiff cross was discovered on the Kinnaird Park Estate in Angus a week ago and caused outrage and upset with dog and animal lovers the world over. It had been so hungry that it had eaten the soil and wood that it could reach.

Animal charity Peta put forward £1,000 of the reward money and the rest has come from individuals and groups angered by the dog's death. Scottish SPCA Ch Supt Mike Flynn said: ‘It’s not just money, many people have been in touch with us to let us know how sickened they've been by this, it's clearly something which has disgusted a lot of people and rightly so. The total is now £2,200 and we're extremely grateful to everyone who's been in touch with their support. Hopefully someone somewhere will come forward with information that we require to bring to justice whoever left this dog to starve to death.’
