"Cruelty defies belief" - QLD Inspector Cameron Buswell

It takes a lot to shock RSPCA Qld Inspector Cameron Buswell. Over the years he’s investigated numerous acts of animal cruelty that have caused community outrage. But even he was stunned at the state of a dog found last Thursday at the Lock and Ross public picnic area. The 18 month old female Staffy cross was found with her muzzle taped shut with electrical wire and her throat slashed.

“The cruelty involved defies belief,” he said. “The poor dog must have been petrified. How she didn’t die is miraculous.”

The RSPCA and the council both received calls about the dog and she was immediately taken to the veterinary surgeon to have her throat stitched. She is recovering well and is currently being cared for by Tina Martin from the Council’s animal management team.

RSPCA Qld is calling on members of the public to come forward if they have any information that may help them establish exactly what happened on the day.

“We don’t know the circumstances behind the attack so any information would be appreciated,” said Inspector Buswell.
