A burned dog (graphic image blurred) found in The Glen area of Cork city this week
Cork Animal Care Society appealed for information about a dog which was found burned in The Glen area of Cork city this week.
The society wrote on Facebook:
Last week we got word of a Lurcher straying. One of our staff, a few good people and the city dog warden went to try get him over a few days but he remained elusive, then disappeared!
Today our staff member was sent these photos from someone she knows of a poor Lurcher BURNT! We believe it is the same dog (same colouring, size, area, etc)
What kind of sick twisted individual/individuals would do this to an animal? Was the dog still alive when it was burnt to death? The person who found its body believes it was.
Over the last few days the amount of cruelty we have heard of and been witness to here in Cork is unbelievable! People who hurt animals are PSYCHOPATHS and if they hurt an animal of course they will hurt a fellow human!
Whoever did this to this poor dog, you will get your comeuppance! If anyone has ANY INFORMATION about this dog please contact us, we promise it will be done confidentially! All the relevant authorities will be informed.
Please do not let this dog’s life be in vain, if anyone knows anything about it, get in touch! Thank you to the kind person who sent us the photos and is understandably very upset by it all! We will update when or if we have any further information! Heartbroken for this poor cratur.
