Appeal for information after body of dog found inside suitcase in Glasgow

Oldmeldrum man given five-year ban

We appealing for information after the body of an emaciated crossbreed was found inside a suitcase near a railway line off Glenmuir Drive, Glasgow on 2 March.


Scottish SPCA inspector, Isla Bell, said, “We received a call from a railway worker who had been doing repairs in the area for a few hours before discovering a large blue suitcase amongst shrubbery near the railway tracks.

“The area had lots of litter and the suitcase stood out because it looked clean and fresh. They opened the suitcase because it was giving off a strong smell and found the dog wrapped in blankets and towels inside.

Body of dog with mass wrapped in bloody nappy

“The dog is a female brindle and white crossbreed. She was very emaciated and in poor condition. She had numerous masses and tumours on her stomach, one of which was wrapped in a nappy soaked in blood.

“The dog’s nails were overgrown, with one growing into her paw pad, causing bleeding. The dog had no microchip and was not wearing a collar.

“If anyone recognises this dog or has any information that could help us piece together what happened to her, we would ask that they contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
