Appeal after dog with tumour found abandoned in Taunton

The RSPCA is trying to trace the owner of a dog found abandoned in Somerset with matted fur and a large protruding tumour.

The elderly terrier cross was spotted tied to bushes on an isolated footpath behind Taunton racecourse last Monday.

The dog has had part of the tumour removed and is being cared for at West Hatch animal centre in the town.

The charity said because she was about 12 years old and may have internal growths, her prognosis was "not good".
