Hunt for man filmed dumping ‘frightened’ dog

The RSPCA is trying to identify a man filmed tying a dog to a fence before he ran off, abandoning it.

The lurcher was found suffering from the cold with extensive fur loss outside a house in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

The property had CCTV cameras and the animal charity now wants to speak to anyone who can identify the man.

Inspector Justin Stubbs said: “She looked so confused and frightened when I arrived.

“She was curled up on the ground with big clumps of fur missing and the sore pink skin showing.”

The lurcher, which is thought to be about four years old and has been named Ella by staff, is being treated for a skin infection and will be taken to an RSPCA animal centre.

Anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV, who was wearing dark clothing and had his hood up, is asked to call 0300 123 8018.
