    Police have appealed for information after a dog which was "deliberately" injured in Aberdeen had to be put down.

    The young collie cross Labrador was found with a "significant head injury" in Rosemount's View Terrace by a member of the public.

    A Grampian Police spokesperson said: "Unfortunately the dog had to be put down due to the extent of its injuries.

    "The dog's injuries, which have been assessed by a vet, are consistent with being deliberately struck on the head."

    'Defenceless dog'
    Scottish SPCA Ch Insp John Carle said: "This appears to have been a sickening attack on a defenceless young dog.

    "We are urging anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact Grampian Police directly or the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999 .

    "Calls are treated in the strictest confidence and information can be given anonymously."

    The dog was found at about 07:30 on Wednesday 4 April.
