The RSPCA is appealing for information after the body of a dead dog was found in a plastic tub in a stream in Gloucestershire.

The dog, who appears to be a male Dutch Shepherd dog, had suffered severe head and leg wounds. He was discovered in Eckington Road in Bredon, near Tewkesbury, on February 17 by a member of the public, who called the animal charity.

Despite making local enquiries, RSPCA inspector Richard Carr says no-one has come forward with information as to how the dog, who wasn’t microchipped, came to be in this location.

There was a large amount  of blood in the tub and the tan and brown-coloured dog had a wound to one of his back legs and his head was bloodied. It is believed the canine may have been seen running around the village as a stray in the past.

RSPCA inspector Richard Carr said, “We are concerned about the unusual circumstances surrounding the discovery of this poor dog. The dog suffered horrific injuries and was dumped in a plastic tub.

“We would ask anyone with information to contact our appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”
