RSPCA is investigating after 6 ’emaciated’ pigeons were dumped in a box

The RSPCA is investigating after 6 ’emaciated’ pigeons were dumped in a box and abandoned by the side of the road in Stockport.

One of the birds had already starved to death by the time the grim discovery – on Cherry Tree Drive was made on Saturday. The other birds were so skinny that their bones were visible were found to have pigeon pox.

The charity says a vet assessed them and decided the kindest thing to do would be to put them to sleep to end their suffering.
