The RSPCA is appealing for information after a dog was found injured in Reading.
A member of the public found the animal on Sunday in the Burghfield area.
He had bite marks all over his face and a bad leg injury which it's believed were caused by badger baiting or some sort of illegal hunting activity.
The dog is now back with his previous owners receiving treatment.
"This poor dog was found in Reading in a horrendous state, with a de-gloved lower jaw - meaning the skin had been ripped from his muzzle. He also had leg wounds and many old scars on his face."
"Veterinary inspection confirmed the dog's awful injuries were consistent with illegal activity, potentially hunting or badger baiting."
"Microchip details traced the dog back to previous owners in South Wales - who were horrified to hear of how the dog had been found, and the fears of the vet. They have brought the poor thing back to Treharris."
"Anyone with information about how this dog was found in the Burghfield area of Reading with horrific injuries on 29 October is urged to contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence."
The 10 week old puppies have been named Captain, Morgan, Jack, Daniel, Sammy and Malt.Read the full story ›
