George is now being cared for by the SSPCA

A KITTEN was abandoned with no food or water in a cage in an Alloa park.

Six-month-old George was found by a member of the public on Monday after being spotted inWest EndPark.

Animal Rescue Officer Jenny Hamilton said, “This poor little guy was left in his carrier with some toys inside but no food or water.

“We can’t be sure how long he had been there and we’re just glad he was found and is safe now.

“This was a very cruel thing to do. There is no excuse to abandon any animal and the person who did this couldn’t have been sure whoever found George would have helped him.

“If anyone can help us identify the person responsible for dumping George we would urge them to contact us as soon as possible.”

Abandoning an animal is an offence that carries stiff penalties including up to six months in prison and a £5,000 fine. Anyone found guilty of doing so can also expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

Anyone with information relating to this abandonment is asked to contact the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
