'Hog-tied' pet dog rescued from park


Wednesday September 3rd 2014

A pet dog has been rescued after being left tethered to a post in a park with its legs tied together.

Now RSPCA officers are trying to find the owner of the boxer-cross, who they are calling Spencer, a job which is being made harder as he is not micro-chipped. A member of the public raised the alarm after spotting Spencer near a skate park at Sloughbottom Park in Norwich at around 6am on August 30.

RSPCA inspector Laura Sayer says although he was not hurt Spencer has been left traumatised by his ordeal.

She says because he was 'hog-tied' Spencer would have been completely unable to move or even stand, making an escape from the post impossible.

The inspector says Spencer, who is believed to be about four years old, seems to have been well looked after prior to the incident, adding that the society and police are working to try and trace his owners.

Norfolk Police are also appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward. Witnesses or anyone with information about Spencer's identity should call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018 or police on 101.
