Don­key car­cass found at Du­las

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

A DEAD don­key was dis­cov­ered on a wrecked ship on an is­land beach.

Mem­bers of the coast­guard were shocked to find the an­i­mal at Du­las on Satur­day and alerted po­lice who quickly launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The force’s ru­ral crime team are look­ing into the grim dis­cov­ery and have ap­pealed for any­one with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward.

PC Dewi Evans said: “The don­key was found in the ship wreck on the beach and the in­fer­ence is that it’s been washed in by the tide but we do not know that for sure. It could have been dumped there.

“How it came to be in the ship is part of our in­ves­ti­ga­tion, at this stage we do not know a lot.

“What we can tell is that the an­i­mal was ne­glected when it was alive.

“The hooves were se­verely over­grown and for some rea­son, the legs had been tied to­gether with yarn. We need any­one who has in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact North Wales Po­lice’s ru­ral crime team and quote ref­er­ence num­ber U189504.
