RSPCA launches investigation after dog is found dumped in Kings Norton with bite marks
Written by Tristan Harris on August 28, 2018
THE RSPCA has launched an appeal after a dog was found dumped in Kings Norton with severe bite marks to her face.
It is believed the cross-breed may have been used as a bait dog.
The charity received reports of the abandoned dog wandering Longdales Road last Wednesday, August 21, with no microchip or dog collar.
Insp Jonathan Ratcliffe went to rescue the Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross and found she had severe bite marks to her face and neck which are consistent with being attacked by another dog. The dog has been taken to Birmingham Animal Hospital where staff have named her Primrose. Anyone with any information on what happened to Primrose should call the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 898.
Inspector Ratcliffe said: “The bite marks on her head and neck are very nasty, there are some big puncture wounds, which leads me to think that she has been used as a bait dog in a fight and then someone has dumped her, although I am keeping an open-mind while my enquiries continue.
“She seemed very sad and she was quite dirty, with long claws so it appears she has been neglected.”
Anyone with any information on what happened to Primrose should call the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 898.
