The body of a dead dog has been found dumped in an abandoned wheelie bin in Northop.

Jarred Livesey, a Northop Community Councillor stumbled across the grim find on Saturday.

Mr Livesey was walking along The Green in the village, when he spotted a wheelie bin in a lay by which is regularly targeted by fly-tippers.

On closer inspection, Cllr Livesey saw the body of a tan and white dog as the bin lid was open, the dogs bedding was also in the wheelie bin.

Cllr Livesey posted pictures of the bin and location on Facebook, he said: “Just come across this on my walk up The Green in Northop.

Absolutely disgusted. Fly-tipping is bad enough. For someone to fly-tip their dead pet dog and all it’s bedding at the side of the road in a rubbish bin is on another level.

Man’s best friend?”

He added, “The bin and it’s contents were removed by FCC [Flintshire Council] yesterday [Sunday] and a vet has been informed to carry out an examination on the dog.”
