‘Brodie deserves justice’


A DOG which has been missing from Tameside for months has been found malnourish­ed and wrapped in a duvet near a Yorkshire reservoir.

Eight-year-old retriever Brodie was found dead on a footpath near to Agden Reservoir, in Sheffield.

A volunteer group called K9-SAR identified Brodie from his microchip before learning he had been missing from

Droylsden since the beginning of the year.

Both South Yorkshire Police and the RSPCA are now investigat­ing how Brodie came to be abandoned more than 30 miles from home. K9-SAR says Brodie ‘needs and deserves justice’.

A police spokespers­on told our sister website YorkshireL­ive: “The report was passed on to the RSPCA who are working to ascertain the circumstan­ces of how the body of the dog came to be found in this location.” Brodie was found by a man walking his dog on the footpath off Windy Bank, near to the reservoir.

K9-SAR collected him from the scene before tracking down his devastated owners in Droylsden.

A manhunt is now under way for anyone responsibl­e for the mistreatme­nt of Brodie prior to his death.

Witnesses are being urged to provide any relevant CCTV or dashcam footage, or to report any sightings of

Brodie being walked between Droylsden and Agden Reservoir from January until his death this week.

Anyone with informatio­n about the incident is urged to call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 858 of April 3, or contact the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999.
