Council officials were “shocked and sad” after discovering the remains of a cat dumped in Lurgan.
The cat’s remains, a blanket and a pet bed were dumped on Glenavon Lane and discovered on March 31, when the council officials were left to deal with the scene.
A spokesman for Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council commented on the shocking discovery and urged anyone with information about the incident to contact the council’s environmental health department.
“Council officials were shocked and saddened yesterday to discover the remains of a cat whose blanket and pet bed were dumped on Glenavon Lane,” said a council spokesman.

“Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Environmental Health Department on 0300 0300 900.
“Alternatively, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
When Alderman spoke to Stephen Moutray about the incident, he said he was “disgusted” to believe an animal could be treated in this way and asked everyone with information to come forward.
“I’m just disgusted,” he said.
“It is really shocking to dump the remains of this poor animal by the side of the road for everyone to find. What kind of people do that
“It’s more than off-putting and I would ask anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact the council’s environmental health department.”
