Appeal for information after cockerels abandoned in field near Fife

We are appealing for information after two Polish Bantam cockerels were found abandoned in a field along Cardenden Road in Fife.

cockerel1cockerel2We were alerted to the cockerels by a member of the public on 26 November.

Inspector Sarah Gregory said, “The  cockerels were found abandoned near Lochgelly in Fife on Sunday.

“A member of the public was able to contain them on Sunday night before calling us on Monday morning to collect.

“They were a bit thin but appear otherwise to be in good health with clean feathers.

“This is not the first instance of animal abandonment in this area. The fields along Cardenden Road have been a hot spot for abandoning animals recently, especially small farm animals.

“Local residents often take in the abandoned animals, which means many cases of abandonment haven’t actually been reported.  

“If anyone recognises these cockerels we’d urge them to contact us as we are keen to identify their owner and whomever is abandoning animals in the Lochgelly area.”

Anyone with information is being urged to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
