Warning to pet owners after dog found “cut in half” in Brighton
A dead dog has been found “cut in half” by a passer by. The exact same area where three other canine carcasses were found nearby. As a result, owners have been warned to keep their pets on close control by the RSPCA.
The discoveries were found on farmland near Mile Oak in Portslade and this news comes just recently after a string of dog kidnapping incidents in the city.
The grim discovery was made by 19 year old Elizabeth Dillistone as she was walking along a path. She said of her finding that “I was just passing by when I saw the dead dog in a field.
She said: “I was just passing by when I saw the dead dog in a field.
“There was only its back legs and half of its body left. It looked like a bull terrier but it had clearly been cut in half and just left there.
“It was horrible - I can't imagine who would do something like that.”
Locals have been worried and they have setup a facebook page called Brighton Dogwatch to share information and try and find out just who is behind these incidents.
A spokesperson for the RSPCA said that “We are extremely concerned about the discovery of these dead dogs and would like to hear from anyone with any information as to what happened to them and who they belonged to. Calls can be made in confidence to the RSPCA on 03001234999.
"Dog walkers should take care when out walking with their pets and keep a close eye on them to ensure they are safe."
