DOG LEFT TO COOK IN SUN

The Weekend Post - - News -

A SIX-month-old dog was left to die in the hot sun when Cairns ex­pe­ri­enced ex­treme tem­per­a­tures in late Novem­ber. The fe­male stafford­shire ter­rier/mas­tiff cross had been chained to the side of a West Cairns home on 30cm of metal chain. There was no shade and the dog had no wa­ter. The RSPCA la­belled is “just dis­gust­ing abuse, ab­so­lutely ab­hor­rent” as the dog was left “ba­si­cally to cook in the hot sun”. RSPCA re­gional in­spec­tor Laura Har­land, who found the an­i­mal, de­scribed it as the “worst heatre­lated in­ci­dent” that she’d been in­volved in and said ev­ery­one had been quite emo­tional.
