The RSPCA is appealing for information after a cockerel was found dead inside a suitcase and left on a street in Bransholme last Tuesday (26 March.)
A member of the public who found the unattended suitcase dumped in the residential area of Wickenby Garth, alerted police who discovered the body of the white adult cockerel inside.
The RSPCA is now investigating.
Inspector Lucy Green said:
This is certainly a very strange and sad situation, and it must be unpleasant for the people who live nearby to think a dead animal has been dumped like this.
