Dog in drain
RSPCA inspectors searched for a dog believed to be trapped down a drain after a report from a resident of a dog barking in a drain in the vicinity of Ravensbourne Street, Yanchep, last week.
After three days and two nights with several residents and a ranger reporting hearing a dog barking, chief inspector for the animal welfare agency, Amanda Swift, said there was no trace of the dog during a search of the drain on Thursday morning but that the animal could have moved to another underground location.
City of Wanneroo rangers attended the site on Tuesday evening, working with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, but could not find any evidence of a dog being trapped in, or having entered the drain. Rangers attended again on Wednesday.
Rangers have continued to monitor the area and physically searched all drains Friday morning.
Rangers attended the site again Friday evening, while stating ‘they had not received any reports of a missing dog in the Yanchep area’.
For safety reasons the City Of Wanneroo placed a lock on the drain.
