THE DISCOVERY of two guinea pigs heartlessly dumped in a shoebox has sparked a police enquiry on two counts.
The News and Chronicle has revealed how the two helpless creatures were dumped at a junction near McTaggart Road in Seafar last Tuesday (May 8) - in a move which could see the culprit face an animal cruelty rap.
However, we have learned that the person responsible could face another key charge - after it emerged that animals were STOLEN from a popular local visitor attraction. After cheating death on the road, they were taken to the Scottish SPCA’s animal welfare centre in Bothwell.
We can reveal that the adult males were allegedly taken from Palacerigg Country Park during a recent break in.
