Dead puppy found in Billericay park
A dead puppy was found by two visitors to Lake Meadows Park, in Billericay last Friday morning. The animal control officers at Basildon Council have launched an investigation according to theenquirer.co.uk.
The dog said to be a 4-month-old Lurcher was left in the lake for two days and it is still not sure whether it was drowned or was dead before being left in the water. The animal control officers believe that the dog’s body had been pulled out of the water by a fisherman as a fishing hook and line was found lodged in the puppy.
According to the source, this is not the first incident in this area. One week ago, the decapitated remains of a swan was found in nearby Northlands Park in Basildon.
