Does anyone know the story of the taxidermied Jack Russell on the up platform at Ledbury?

Possibly the same as this?

This seemed to be a bit of a Southern Railway/ Region thing. Dogs (alive) were used to collect money from passengers to support the Woking Children's Home. When the dogs shuffled off their mortal coil they were stuffed, put in a glass case, and continued to garner donations.

That was posted in this thread: https://www.railforums.co.uk/threads/weirdest-oddities-still-on-the-uk-network.176048/post-3811488

Anyone got a photo of the Ledbury dog?
