THE RSPCA is appealing for information after a dead cat was found in a black bag in Treherbert.

The black short haired unneutered male was found by a member of the public on Tuesday at around 2pm on Scott Street.

RSPCA animal collection officer Fiona Jackson said: “The cat was found outside a house on Scott Street in a bag. He had no collar or chip so we don’t know who he belongs to.

“We don’t know what happened to him – but he had a large wound to his right hind leg, so he could have been involved in a road traffic collision and then someone wrapped him up.

“We are appealing for information to try and find out what happened and who he belongs to.”

Anyone who may have information about this cat should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
