The mutilated body of a dog has been found in a suitcase.

The discovery was made in the attic of a bungalow on Hatton Farm Gardens in Hatton, Aberdeenshire.

Scottish SPCA officers were called to the home shortly before 4pm on Tuesday.

STV News understands the breed of the dog has yet to be identified because it was found in such a mangled state.

Scottish SPCA inspector Fiona Shand said: "We have been alerted to a dead dog at a property in Hatton.

"We are awaiting post-mortem results to confirm cause of death.

"Anyone concerned about the welfare of an animal should contact our animal helpline on 03000 999 999."
