Another Case Of Animal Cruelty Surfaces In Malta

Puppies thrown away in a sack


A sack of newborn puppies were found discarded in a sack near Żebbuġ yesterday by a group of scouts.  One of the puppies survived, but the other two did not, according to a report in The Times.

The Stella Maris College group rescued the forsaken puppies after they heard whimpering and caught glimpses of the sack moving. The group notified the Animal Welfare Department who arrived to collect both the surviving puppy, as well as the two which had died.
