Another macabre discovery in the residence of the elderly English woman who was found dead in her home at St Paul’s Bay.
When Malta SPCA officials went to the house this morning to take away the dead woman’s cats, they found Janet Harvey’s dog dead under the bed on which she is believed to have been lying for three months.
The Police made contact with animal activist Moira Delia and informed her that the elderly woman had also kept a number of pets at her home. Moira Delia went to the house this morning together with Malta SPCA officials, and told TVM that they found four cats alive, as well as a dead dog.
The presenter and animal activist said the dog, a Chihuahua, appears to have died of a broken heart, as Janet’s husband Russell used to leave dried food for the animals.
Moira Delia explained that a baited trap had been left in place, in case there are still other cats trapped in the house. She added that the cats will be quarantined because of the unhygienic state of the room where they were found, after which they will be cleaned up and offered for adoption.
Moira Delia, who presents Animal Diaries on TVM, will be focusing on this case in today’s programme. Animal Diaries will be broadcast on TVM tonight at 6.30 p.m.
