WARNING: Readers may find the image in this story upsetting

THE RSPCA is appealing to readers for help after a young dog was drowned in a fishing lodge tied to a 20kilo sandbag.

Tests have shown that the two-year-old brown Rottweiler cross Staffordshire bull terrier dog, which hadn’t been neutered, was discovered by a dog walker who saw it in one of the two lodges alongside Lower Leigh Road between Atherton and Daisy Hill.

An RSPCA inspector told the Journal: “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 123 4999.

Its disgusting that you made this image public. If hat happened to a person u wouldnt have made the images public so why do that to a poor animal. Rspca are rubbish and always have been you did nothing when I rang about a dog that was being starved to death and living in its own poo and **** 24/7 I rang and rang about that poor animal and nothing was done it was disgusting and u have the cheek to pester me for donations! I used to donate to you till my calls for help were ignored. Rspca do nothing for animals and then sad things like this happen it makes me sick.

They put the picture on to try to identify the owner, maybe murderer, of this poor dog. There were 2 warnings in the text above the picture, so you did not have to look at it.
