The RSPCA is appealing for help after an adult male crossbreed dog was found in Nelson.
The adult dog was found in a park just off Netherfield Road and Barkerhouse Road, tucked away in a corner near the entrance, and tied to a fence with a chain lead.
A member of public reported this to the local council dog warden and it appears the dog had been there for 24hours.
It is unclear whether the dog has intentionally been abandoned or if it had got loose and someone had tied him up.
Anyone with information can call the RSPCA’s 24/7 National Control Centre 03001234999 and quote incident number 1330/08/04/16.
