A dead puppy has been found dumped inside a pink toy box in the street in Derbyshire.
The male brown and white crossbreed-type puppy was found at Guildford Avenue in Swadlincote.
It was found by a passer-by who contacted the RSPCA.
The puppy was found inside the box lying on a pink, flowery duvet cover. Inspector Charlotte Melvin said:
It follows the discovery of a dead puppy with a broken neck and leg in a box for a Tommee Tippee bottle steamer, which had been dumped in a communal bin in Newcastle-under-Lyme, in Staffordshire, a week ago.
