Sleep peacefully gentle girl

A dogs body found tied up inside a potato sack has been washed up on the banks of the River Foyle in Derry in very similar circumsatnces to the two greyhounds drowned last year.

Joanne Mullan who volunteers for the Rainbow Animal Shelter says “It was a horrible day and it was clear that this dog was still alive when dumped in the river, as it pushed its legs through the sack. Although badly decomposed I believe it to be a greyhound carcass. This animal died a horrific horrendous death. This is totally inexcusable and absolutely disgusting but probably is just the tip of the iceberg.”
