The RSPCA is appealing for information after the body of a dog wrapped in a pink dressing gown was dumped in woods in Huddersfield.

The dog – a young female tan Staffordshire bull terrier – was found by a member of the public in a wooded wasteland area off Greenwood Street on Tuesday February 20.

RSPCA animal rescue officer Aleesha Haddlesey said: “We are keen to find out more information and are asking the public for their help. There is no obvious cause of death, though the dog had injuries to her tail and also had fur loss.

“The dog had been wrapped in a pink dressing gown before being dumped. We’re urging anyone who can help us find out more about what happened to this poor dog to get in touch with us.”

Anyone with information can call the RSPCA’s appeals line on 0300 123 8018, quoting reference 1226743.
