Warning to dog owners L’Ancresse/Pembroke – dead cow on beach

Earlier today the GSPCA were informed of a dead cow that had been washed onto our coast and passed the information to the States Vet.

The Environment Department is advising dog owners that a dead cow (adult) has been washed up on to the rock outcrop in the centre of L’Ancresse/Pembroke bay today.

The body is in very poor condition and it may pose a hazard to dogs if they eat it.

David Chamberlain, the States Vet, considers the cow is likely to be of French origin.

13 stray Tortoise so far in 2013 - Currently we have 2 still at the Shelter in search of their owners

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:26, 2nd Sep, 2013 | 0

This year we have seen 13 stray tortoise and currently we have 2 at the Shelter.

All 11 that came in earlier in the year are back with their owners but Ridley as he's been named above by Shelter staff and Fabian below both came in last week.

Ridley was found in the Camp du Roi area and Fabian was found at L'Ancresse.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'This year we have seen more stray Tortoise than ever before.'

'If anyone has lost any pet we always urge them to report it at the Shelter as we see anywhere between 50 and sometimes over 100 stray animals every month.'
