Dog attacked and left tied up in Norwich park

Just before 6am someone found a brown and white boxer cross dog abandoned in Sloughbottom Park with his legs all tied together and his collar bound up with string and household electrical cable.

The dog is thought to be about 4 years old and while he was in pain from being tied up he is relatively healthy. He's not got an identity tag or micro chip.

"Attacking a dog in this way is completely unacceptable and I would urge anyone who has information about the incident to contact me. Officers will be working with Inspectors from the RSPCA to find the person responsible and take action.”

"Poor Spencer was traumatised from this horrible ordeal but luckily not hurt. He is a lovely dog, and has clearly been well looked after, so it might even be that there is a loving owner out there missing him. We urge anyone with any information to come forward.
