Hansa: Family saddened as lost dog found dead

2011-09-07 00:00

THE Kelman family’s week of searching for their lost Jack Russell, Hansa, has ended in sadness.

A member of the public phoned the Kelmans saying he had seen a dog matching Hansa’s description.

The family’s beloved pet was already dead and stuffed into a black rubbish bag in Hilton on the road between Rotunda and Cedara.

Mark Kelman said, “I’m devastated, but at least we have closure.”

He and his wife Cheryl thanked everyone who helped.

Kelman said, “Hundreds of people have been phoning since 6 am trying to assist in the search.”

He added he would “love to see everyone” help a stray dog in the future. It does not take long and could alleviate the stress and anxiety a family could be experiencing.
