Re: [elzzia] Mastiff tied up & left to starve!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

A pet owner tied a dog to a fence post and left it to starve to death in an incident described by an animal charity as one of the worst cases of cruelty ever seen.

The body of a female Mastiff was discovered in woodland at the Kinnaird Park Estate in Brechin, Angus by a worker at a nearby farm.

The muzzled dog was found tethered to a barbed wire fence with blue twine.

A post mortem on the animal showed it could have taken up to two weeks for her to die from starvation and dehydration.

The dog had desperately tried to eat soil and fragments of wood in a bid to stay alive.

Senior inspector at the Scottish animal charity SPCA Mark Lumgair said: "This poor dog has been made to suffer unimaginable cruelty over a prolonged period of time."

Abandoning an animal is an offence which could result in a fine of up to 5,000 and six months in prison.

Mr Lumgair told Sky News Online: "In cases of extreme cruelty we would always push for a ban on these people ever looking after animals again."

Anyone with information should contact the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.

:: A dog died after it was kicked into the air by a man who was angry after its pensioner owner stumbled and fell onto his car.

The tan-coloured miniature pinscher, which was being walked by a 72-year-old man, was attacked in Woodley, near Reading in Berkshire.
