Police release CCTV stills after a dog was abandoned in Glossop

Posted on 18th March 2014

Police release CCTV images of a man they want to trace in connection with an animal welfare incident in Glossop.

At around 1.10pm on Friday, January 31, an Alsatian was tied up behind the Beehive Inn on Hague Street, Glossop.

Officers were alerted by a member of the public at around 8pm when the dog had still not been collected and the RSPCA were called to the incident.

RSPCA inspector Gilly Howard said: "Fortunately this dog was spotted and taken in by a caring member of the public, who has now given her a new home. 

"If not, she could well have been there all night."

PC Sean Moss from Glossop Safer Neighbourhood Team added: “Anyone with any information about the incident or recognises the man in the CCTV images are urged to contact police to help with the RSPCA investigations.”
