THE RSPCA is appealing for information after a dog was allegedly beaten by two men in Caerphilly.
A member of the public, who notified the RSPCA, said a woman riding a horse said she saw two men beating a dog and then ran off.
The male brindle lurcher was found collapsed on a small grass verge at the end of Rudry Road, Rudry, Caerphilly, at 7.10pm on Tuesday (16 September).
RSPCA inspector Holly Brown said: “The poor thing was found by a member of public in a collapsed state with an injured head. The dog was disorientated and lethargic.
“A lady on a horse allegedly told the member of public that she saw two males in the area beat the dog. Unfortunately we have no details of the lady on the horse and no descriptions of the males.
“We urge anyone who has any information about this incident to get in touch,
especially the woman who saw what happened.
“The dog has been taken to a vet in Newport but is not doing well at all. They suspect the dog has neurological damage.”
Anyone who may have information about this incident should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
