Police are investigating the grim discovery, made by Annmarie Curry at the frog pond in Cornelia Street in Motherwell.

She told the paper: We were down and my three dogs were away playing at the pond. They seemed distracted by something and wouldn't come back so I went down after them.

"One of my dogs started pulling an Asda bag out of the water. I thought it was just a bag of rubbish but when I pulled it, I saw all the fur.

"I burst out crying - initially I thought it was a dog.

"Then I recognised the leg of a deer and emptied the bag out. There were internal organs, four legs and the torso.

It was at that point I realised the head was missing.

"A pair of blue gloves were also stuffed inside the bag. They had obviously used them and put them in the bag.

"They hadn't even tied the bag before throwing it into the pond."
