Police are struggling to investigate a puppy’s death after it was allegedly chucked from a car on the A1(M) by the junction for Welwyn.

Police received a call at 12.22pm on Wednesday, October 31, to reports that a puppy had been thrown from a moving car on the A1(M) northbound near Junction 6 for Welwyn.

A police spokeswoman said: “Officers attended and sadly found the puppy deceased.”

The witness described the puppy as a Labrador.

The spokeswoman added: “At this time it does not appear that there is any evidence that the puppy was thrown from a vehicle.

“Anyone who saw what happened, or has information about what happened, should contact Hertfordshire Constabulary on the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 291 of October 31.”

An RSPCA spokesperson said: “This sounds like a very distressing incident.

“If anyone saw what happened to this puppy first hand we would urge them to get in contact with the RSPCA on 0300 123 4999.”
