An animal welfare charity has launched an investigation after the body of an English bulldog was found in a burn at a golf club in Fife.
The female tan and white dog was covered in “thick mud” when she was discovered at Canmore Golf Club in Dunfermline on Sunday.
Scottish SPCA inspector Robyn Gray said the dog was still wearing her lead with poo bag holder attached when she was found.
She said: “The dog is female and approximately one year old.
“She was wearing a leather collar and lead with a poo bag holder attached.
“The dog is microchipped but unfortunately the details on the chip were registered to a veterinary practice in Edinburgh.
“We were able to trace the breeder through these details but sadly not her owner.
“We’re keen to find out how she passed away and came to be in this location.
“We’d also like to trace her owner so we can inform them of what’s happened to their dog if they are unaware that she’s passed away.
“If anyone recognises this dog or has any information on this incident they can contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
