Dead dogs found in dumped household waste

Two dead dogs have been found amongst household waste which was dumped last week south of Arklow.

Members of the Wicklow county council environment team made the grim discovery while they were collecting illegally dumped waste at Springfield close to Clogga, Arklow on Monday.

A resident told “10 bags of waste were dumped on the roadside and one of the officers was checking to see were there any receipts or letters that might identify the culprits, when he cut open one of the bags the smell was dreadful, they put the bags on the truck and opened the others it was then the second dog was found”.

The dogs were described as sheepdog types, in the same location last month two dead badgers were found dumped with household waste.
