Appeal over emaciated dead dog find in Elgin

The discovery of an emaciated dead dog in Elgin woodland has sparked an appeal for information.

The Scottish SPCA said the small female German shepherd crossbreed was found wrapped in curtains in Mayne Wood on Tuesday.

The dog was wearing a pink collar.

Senior inspector Lesley Crockett said: "A post mortem examination revealed this poor dog died of malnutrition. She was very underweight."
