DISTURBING CASE OF ANIMAL CRUELTY IN THE HUNTER

The RSPCA is appealing to the public for information with a disturbing case of animal abuse emerging in the Hunter.

The animal welfare group has issued an urgent call for information after a severely emaciated dog was dumped at a Muswellbrook pound, last week.

The young dog, named Hugo by an inspector, was seized and rushed to a vet where he remains in care.

The RSPCA has posted photos of the Hugo, which show his visible rib cage and vertebrae.

The group says the dog has no identification but someone will know something.

“I would also ask that if someone did find this dog as a stray, that they please come forward to advise where and when the dog was found to assist with our enquiries”, says RSPCA NSW Inspector Russell Jarman.

The dog is expected to make a full recovery.

Penalties for animal cruelty offences include up to 5 years imprisonment and a $22,000 fine.
