London, July 26 (IANS) Twelve puppies crammed into a rubbish container and left to die in a British town were rescued after a passers-by noticed them.

The five-week-old Staffordshire bull terrier cross pups were dehydrated and weak. They had been abandoned in Penllergaer, near Swansea, South Wales, The Sun reported.

They were noticed by passers-by the next morning and taken to an animal rescue centre.

“They were in a bad way after being packed into the bin like sardines. It is staggering that someone could just put them out like the rubbish.

“We have treated them with emergency fluids and antibiotics - all 12 have bounced back,” shelter manager Laura Simpson was quoted as saying.
