Dead dog found in Plain Road, Marden

A dead dog was found wrapped in two plastic bags after being apparently thrown in a ditch.

The decaying body was discovered on Friday morning in Plain Road, Marden, after a member of the public smelt the rotting remains.

KentOnline has been told the canine looked like a terrier-type dog and as if it had been thrown in a ditch.

We have decided the picture of the dog's decaying body is too distressing to publish.

Earlier this month, decomposed bodies of 10 animals, including three dogs still in their beds, were found sealed in boxes in a secluded country lane, 12 miles from Plain Road.

All animals were scanned for microchips but none were found. The RSPCA launched an investigation, appealing for information.

Within the containers, three small brown terrier-type dogs were discovered, as well as smaller animals.

Friday's discovery has been referred to the RSPCA, who is urging anyone with information about the dog to get in touch.

A charity spokesman said: “We are aware of this very sad discovery and would urge anyone with any further information about this to please contact us on 0300 1234 999.”

A spokesman for Kent Police said: "Kent Police was called regarding a report that a member of the public had found the remains of a dead dog in a plastic bag on Plain Road, Marden."
