RSPCA seek information on 'distressing' bonfire death
10:00am Tuesday 28th January 2014 in Devon
THE RSPCA is appealing for information on the owners of a dog found burnt to death on a bonfire in Woodbury Woods, Exeter.
Its badly charred remains were found on Thursday, January 16 by a member of the public on a bridleway in the woods, which are next to a country club.
RSPCA inspector Sarah Heatherington said: “I estimate that the fire was fairly recent – the previous evening – and would like to establish who the owners of the dog are and the circumstances that led to it being placed on a bonfire in the woods.
“It appears to be a white poodle type dog and it was one of the most distressing things I’ve seen in a long time.”
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call the RSPCA’s inspector information line on 0300-1238018 and leave a message for Inspector Heatherington.
