Morley: a mistreated dog’s story

Have you seen Morley around Abergele?
Have you seen Morley around Abergele?


Look at Morley. A lovely dog who has been treated with cruelty. The Manchester Evening News says that the person charged with doing this moved to Abergele. Morley is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Animal lover and AbergelePost reader Linda Reynolds has been in touch to tell his story and to try to find out what’s happened to him. Can you help?

She writes: “Morley was the staffie involved in the distressing court case, reported in the Manchester Evening News in March of this year. His owner, Martin Doyle, tethered Morley on a balcony with his mouth tied shut, unable to pant or drink water”

If you’re easily upset by cruelty to animals, don’t watch the video of the CCTV footage. Linda continues:
“It was reported in the article that Morley was taken to a re-homing centre but we have discovered that this was not in fact the case. We have been told many different versions of what actually happened. to Morley. The following is what we do know:  The RSPCA visited the owner but didn’t remove the dog. Mr Doyle moved to Abergele and said he gave Morley away. Mr Doyle’s mother says she gave Morley to a re-homing centre ‘somewhere off the A548 heading towards Abergele Hospital.’ – ‘a sort of farm that takes in strays.’”

Linda Reynolds wants to know if any AbergelePost readers know of such a place in or around Abergele. But, most of all, she wants to know what has happened to Morley: “We simply need to know if Morley is now being cared for, and if he is still in rescue we would like to help him find a home.”

16 photos of the 1981 Abergele Carnival

Here are 16 photos by Dennis Parr of the 1981 Abergele Carnival. You may spot a few familiar faces here. It’s good to see Market Street lined with so many people. The first image brings back a memory of the Pet Shop at the Market Street / Water Street traffic lights. Look out for local photographer Cliff Pickup and the Caernarfon Royales amongst these.
