The emaciated body of a greyhound has been found dumped in a bin in Norfolk.
The discovery was made in Arlington Way, Thetford, after a member of the public became suspicious about an abandoned bin, which police have taken for forensic tests.
The five-year-old greyhound was microchipped and had been wrapped in a curtain and a bed sheet.
Nicola Thorne, RSPCA, said the dog appeared to have been dumped in a bin "like a piece of rubbish."
Ms Thorne said she had been able to trace some previous owners but wanted to hear from anyone who knew the dog's most recent address.
She said: "Kerry was rehomed, five years old, and you would think she was going to live a nice quiet life with someone and be looked after.
"But for whatever reason it looks as if she was passed on and left to starve to death."
