Disposition: Open

Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

The RSPCA yesterday described as "disgraceful and callous" the people who threw a dog out of a moving car. The Jack Russell cross died after the incident on the A465 Heads of the Valley Road in South Wales on Saturday.

Louise Thomas and her teenage son, from the Cefn Coed area, stopped to help the injured animal on the road near Dowlais and took it to the Ash Veterinary Surgery in Merthyr on Saturday.

Receptionist Marsha Craze said, "Mrs Thomas came into the surgery with the dog, but it had already died by the time they arrived here. The eight-year-old dog had broken ribs. Everyone here was really horrified. There is no need for such cruelty."
