A female German Shepherd was found shot in the head and dumped in a plastic bag in a ditch in Co. Meath this morning.
A member of the public made the discovery while out walking on a quiet road off the R164 between Moynalty and Kingscourt. The Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is appealing for information following the discovery.
ISPCA Inspector Elaine Whyte said: “She was in good condition prior to death and was wearing a black collar but there was no ID tag or microchip. She had been shot twice, both at close range.”
The dog was believed to be two years old.
The Animal Rights Action Network (Aran) is offering a €3,000 reward for information.
