The Scottish SPCA is trying to trace the owner of a lost lamb spotted wandering on a Dumfries street.

It was found on the town's Hardthorn Road on Friday.

The animal welfare charity said it was unlikely to have travelled far and appealed for anyone who recognises it to get in touch.

The lamb was found with a number 13 written in purple paint on its side and was also wearing a "wee plastic coat" at the time.

Animal Rescue Officer Sheena MacTaggart said: "Unfortunately the lamb doesn't have an identification tag or a microchip so we're appealing to anyone who recognises it to get in touch.

"It's likely the lamb hasn't travelled far but it's struggling to suck the bottle so we're desperate to find the mother."
