RSPCA appeal for help to catch killer who skinned dogs and hung them from trees

Two completed skinned dogs have been found hanging from trees in woods.

The  RSPCA  is appealing for information after a walker notified them about the horrific discovery of the dogs in Rotherham, south Yorkshire, on Thursday.

Due to their horrific injuries the RSPCA was unable to clarify the breed of the dogs.

A rodent was also found with its skin removed alongside the bodies at Washfield Lane woods.

RSPCA inspector Jennie Ronksley said: “Members of the public contacted our emergency line after a horrific discovery in a small area of trees near Treeton Dike on Thursday night.

"The bodies are completely skinned and were beside a black bin bag liner.

“What’s not clear is whether the bodies have been dumped together in the bag and then dragged out and predated on by wildlife, or whether they were skinned before being dumped in this area."

Mrs Ronkskey is appealing for information into the sickening murders.

She said: “It’s a really shocking sight and I’m extremely concerned that these animals may have suffered before their untimely deaths so I’d like to hear from anyone with any information.

"I can barely tell what species the bodies are let alone any further details like their breed, so we’re in the dark and could really do with the support of the public.

"From the minor traces of fur left on the dogs’ feet, I believe one was black in colour and the other was cream.

“It seems strange for more than one animal to be found like this if there’s an innocent explanation so this seems very suspicious to me."

In August a major investigation into the shocking abuse of dogs at a puppy farm was launched after 41 pooches were found starving to death.

Harrowing footage, recorded at the farm in Quintanar de la Orden,  Spain, showed skeletal dogs struggling to stand while their ribs shows through their skin, ABC Espanol reported.

The dogs were kept in "appalling hygienic sanitary conditions" when they were found on August 16, the title reports.

In the clip, one helpless animal is biting the wires of its enclosure and others are wagging their tails tentatively while an investigator examines their disgusting living conditions.

Many dogs are so thin that their heads look out of proportion to their bodies.
