RSPCA in search for owner of abandoned dead dog in London
The RSPCA is trying to track down the owner of a dog whose body was discovered wrapped tightly in bin liners in Willesden, London, a month ago.
The dog, which was a female, chocolate brown, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was found between two communal bins in Griffin Close, Willesden.
She was also lactating, which indicates that she had recently had a litter of puppies and she also had a white blaze down the front of her chest.
The dog was discovered on Tuesday 16th April, however, because of the routine emptying of the bins, it is thought that she could been left there between Friday 12th April and Monday 15th April.
Speaking on the RSPCA official website, inspector Dale Grant said: “Her injuries can only be described as horrific. She had a mass of deep penetrating puncture wounds over vast areas of her head, neck, chest and front legs.
“Her left ear had also been chewed off and she appeared to have fought back because she had bitten through her own lip.
“A vet who examined her believed that only one other dog took part in the attack because there was a distinct lack of injuries to her hind quarters.
“There is no doubt that this little bitch perished in the most awful way so if anyone has any information which could help us find her owner please contact the RSPCA.”
The dog had no collar or microchip.
If you have lost a dog fitting this description or have any information about who her owner might be please call the RSPCA Inspector Information line on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message in confidence for inspector Grant.
