    RSPCA appeal after emaciated dog found in Derbyshire

    NewsAnimal CrueltyWednesday 16 May 2012

    An emaciated dog who was found abandoned in Derbyshire was unable to walk and weighed only 5kg (11lb), an animal charity said.

    Derby RSPCA has appealed for anyone with information about Poppy, a lurcher-greyhound cross found near Ashbourne on 7 May, to make contact.

    Malcolm Hall, animal centre manager, said it was one of the worst cases of cruelty he had seen.

    BBC East Midlands Today's Kylie Pentelow reports.
