In a truly shocking story five defenceless collie-cross puppies have been found after they were heartlessly dumped in a coal bag in a woodland area of Woodstown, Co Waterford.
The horrifying discovery of the adorable pups was made earlier today when a member of the public heard a faint cry whilst walking by.
The shocked woman who made the discovery contacted Waterford SPCA immediately. It is believed the puppies who are less than five weeks old, are thankfully fine abd are currently being looked after by the ISPCA.
Meanwhile a ISPCA spokeswomen said: “It is shocking how anyone could just abandon such young helpless puppies, far too young to be separated from their mother, and just left to fend for themselves.”
