We’ve received a sad report that a large fox was run down tonight, Saturday 19 January 2019 on Stonefield Road Blantyre.
The animal was struck by a vehicle sometime before 7pm and suffered head injuries, resulting in its death. Lying on the road, nobody seems to have stopped to move it or see how it was. The driver of the vehicle which hit it must surely have known what happened.
Sometime later, a passing couple did however spot it and had the distressing, compassionate task of lifting the heavy, dead animal from the road into the side road entrance to the Bowling Club.
To anybody who spots the dead animal, we have tonight contacted Environmental Services to have it uplifted first thing on Monday morning.
