Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Six-week-old kitten dumped in Milton bin

In a deliberate act of animal cruelty, a six-week-old ginger and white kitten was stuffed into a paper bag and dumped in a bin on Ashgill Road, Milton.

While I don’t support the sort of witch-hunt called for by some when animals are dumped at shelters, the obviously no similarity between that and instances where people deliberately hide animals in places of danger, with the clear of aim of having someone unwittingly injure or kill them.

An appeal has been launched after a kitten was discovered inside a bin on a Glasgow North street.

The Scottish SPCA was alerted to the incident after a passer-by on Ashgill Road heard the young cat in distress on Wednesday, September 11.

The male, ginger and white kitten, who is around six weeks old, was found inside a white paper bag in a big.

Now, the Scottish SPCA is calling for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

Animal rescue officer Ryan Cannon said: “The kitten was discovered inside a white paper bag in a bin.

“The bin is on Ashgill Road near the bus stop at Scaraway Street in the Milton area.

“He is a male, ginger and white kitten and we estimate he is around six weeks old. At this age, he should still be with his mum.

“We are thankful the member of the public heard the kitten’s cries. Who knows what would have happened if he hadn’t been found.

“He is now receiving the care he needs at one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres.

“Someone deliberately put this kitten in the bin and we want to find out what happened.

“If anyone has any information, we would urge them to call our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”

Six week old kitten found abandoned in bin on Glasgow street

So, let’s identify who this was, and turn them in (before they start doing the same to children one day).

Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006, with anyone found guilty of doing so facing a ban from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.
