Police are appealing for information from members of the public after a body of a badly beaten and burned dog was found in Sheffield.

Sometime between Monday, 18 February, and Sunday, 24 February, on a path off Manor Laith Road, near to the allotments, a light coloured Staffordshire Bull Terrier male dog is believed to have been severely beaten, before reportedly being tied to a tree and set on fire. Officers believe the dog suffered terribly before dying.

Police would like to speak to anyone that may have seen this dog in the area at this time, or who may have lost a dog that fits this description. Anyone with any information should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 488 of 24 February 2013. Alternatively, people can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
