RSPCA issues appeal after dog killing

An RSPCA inspector has appealed for information after the “savage and brutal” killing of a dog in Toddington.

The animal charity said it was likely the brindle and white dog had been killed that day or the night before.

RSPCA inspector Mel Fisher who is investigating, said: “This young bitch, who was probably only one or two, appeared to have been in good health and there were no signs of other trauma which leads us to believe she died as a direct result of her injuries.

“No weapon was found at the scene but there was a lot of blood so it is highly possible whoever did this took her out for a walk in the area specifically so they could kill her and leave her body – but we cannot rule out her being killed elsewhere and then her body being dumped.”

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message for Inspector Fisher.

Note to readers: The charity has released a photograph of the animal, however we have decided not to publish it due to the distressing nature of the image.
