We were alerted to a post on Facebook about a deceased dog that looked as though he/she had been set on fire down North Dane Way in Lordswood in the woods behind where the burger van sits.
We attended as soon as we could to investigate. When we arrived it was very apparent that this dog had been set fire to and left there. We alerted the authorities and they instructed us to take the deceased to a vet pending further investigation.
We have checked the dog for a chip but no chip was found. No collar at the site either. The dog was a female and looked like she was a small Staffordshire Bull Terrier type dog. We are unsure of what colour the dog was as she has been burnt very badly. It appears as though there was some accelerant used as the surrounding trees and bushes were also badly burnt. We believe the dog was already deceased before being set on fire.
If you have any information regarding this then please call 101 quoting the reference number: 18-0396
Unfortunately we cannot place photos online as it is very distressing. This has happened within the last 48 hours.
