Dog ‘stabbed to death’ found in bin after being wrapped in bloodied towels

A tragic dog was stabbed to death after being knifed several times before being and dumped in a bin, the RSPCA believes.

The organisation has launched an investigation after youngsters were shocked to discover the body of a Staffordshire bull terrier-type dog thrown away like rubbish at a park.

Inspector Debs Beats says it looks like the poor black female dog bled to death from injuries unlikely to have been inflicted by another animal.

The animal charity is urging anyone to come forward if they have information on the un-microchipped pet which was found wrapped in bloodied towels at Cheetham Park, Greater Manchester, on Sunday.

Inspector Beats took the body of the dog to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital where a veterinary examination took place.

This suggested the dog, which was aged between one to two years-old, had a number of knife wounds to the right hand side of her body and some on her back.

At this stage the cause of death cannot be established but due to the blood loss it appears that the pet bled to death.

It is also believed the dog may have had puppies due to her enlarged teats.

Inspector Beats said: “It appears the poor dog has been stabbed multiple times and – due to the blood loss on the towels she was wrapped in – it is strongly suspected she bled to death.

“The injuries were all down one side so it would also appear the dog did not fight off the attack.

“I am keen to find the person responsible and would like to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the weekend when the poor dog was found.

“She is mainly black in colour but has distinctive white marks on her chest and all her toes which I hope will help identify who she belonged to prior to this horrific attack. She was also wearing a rope collar and lead and it appears she may have had puppies due to her enlarged teats.

“I am hoping someone will be able to piece this information together to help identify the dog and hopefully find the person responsible for this horrific crime.”

Anyone with information should report the matter to the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 8018.
