The RSPCA is investigating an incident in which a dog was found stabbed to death in a garden shed in Leicester.
The dog, a staffordshire bull terrier called Snowy, was found with fatal injuries in a garden shed at her home address in Hand Close, Braunstone.
Snowy was found on 29 December and officers believe the appalling crime could have taken place between Boxing Day and the day the animal was found.
The RSPCA are appealing to the public for any information about the incident.
RSPCA inspector Beth Boyd, who is leading the investigating, said: “This is an absolutely despicable crime that we are taking very seriously. We would be so grateful for any information at all that may help us find who is responsible.”
If anyone can help the animal welfare organisation with their investigation, please contact the RSPCA’s appeals line on 0300 123 8018, leaving a message for Inspector Boyd.
