Dog tied to sandbag and drowned in fishing lodge

The Bolton News: Dog tied to sandbag and drowned in fishing lodge Dog tied to sandbag and drowned in fishing lodge

A YOUNG dog was tied to a 20kg sandbag and drowned in a fishing lodge between Atherton and Daisy Hill.

The two-year-old brown Rottweiler cross Staffordshire bull terrier dog, which had not been neutered, was found by a dog walker who saw it in one of the two lodges alongside Lower Leigh Road.

An RSPCA inspector said: “Tests have shown that the poor animal was alive when it met its fate, weighed down by a black sandbag tied to a blue and red lead.

“The two-year-old had been microchipped locally. It was found by a dog walker on October 13 and had been in the water for between 24 and 48 hours.

“We have since been trying to find out the last known movements and whereabouts of this poor dog.

“We need people to come forward to help us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact RSPCA Inspector Brooks on 0300 1234999.

How can anyone do this? You would only have to take it to the animal shelter and they would have taken it off you and re homed it, anyone who can do this is capable of anything, hope you can live with yourself you monster,

If it was microchipped, as stated in the story, then it should be easy to trace the owner.
When found the owner should be thrown in the lodge to see how they like it !

this is barbaric to the nth degree - and I am no dog lover. How could someone do that and just walk away when there are other avenues to go down if they did not want to keep the dog?

Cowardly evil filth. I hope they rot in hell. No doubt when they are eventually tracked down and dealt with it will be the usual paltry fine and slapped wrists. They should have the same done to them. It is scary to think there are such vile people walking the streets.

The sooner he goes to Hell the better, In the meantime, a nice lengthy spell in jail would be justice.
