Inspector Isla Bell said: “We received a call from a railway worker who had been conducting repairs in the area for a number of hours before spotting a large blue suitcase in bushes near the railway tracks.
“There was a lot of rubbish in the area and the suitcase stood out because it looked clean and fresh. They opened the suitcase because it gave off a strong odor and found the dog inside, wrapped in blankets and towels.
“The dog is a female brindle and white crossbreed. She was very emaciated and in poor condition. She had numerous masses and tumors on her abdomen, one of which was wrapped in a blood-soaked diaper.
“The dog’s nails were overgrown, with one growing into the pads of her paws, causing bleeding. The dog was not microchipped and was not wearing a collar.”
“If anyone recognizes this dog or has any information that could help us find out what happened to her, we would ask them to contact our confidential animal hotline on 03000 999 999.”
