The owner of a cockerel found at a bus stop in an Aberdeen suburb is being sought by the Scottish SPCA.

A member of the public spotted the bird in Maryculter and took it to the animal rescue centre in Drumoak, where the name Decker was chosen.

Centre manager Graeme Innes said: "It's possible he has strayed from home or he could have been abandoned.

"Although he appears confident, he can be a little nervous and isn't used to being handled."
