A DOG was rescued after being thrown from a bridge in Moreton onto wasteland on New Year's Day.

A member of the public rescued Milo the male border terrier after witnessing the incident on Lingham Lane.

Milo is now being looked after by the RSPCA.

As he isn't microchipped, the RSPCA are now appealing to the public to help inspectors find where he came from.

RSPCA’s chief inspector for Wirral Brett Witchalls said: “Despite what he went through, Milo is thankfully uninjured.

"Staff at the animal hospital where he is being cared for say he is very bouncy and in a good condition.

“The woman who witnessed the incident said that it was a tall male in his 20s, who was driving a black Corsa, who threw Milo from the bridge.

“Why someone would throw an animal off a bridge is beyond us. Milo was very lucky to not be seriously injured.

“We are keen to find out why this happened. He may also be someone’s much-loved pet who has gone missing, and if so then it would be great to reunite him with his owner.”

Anyone who has any information should contact the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 8018.
