The RSPCA are appealing for information after the body of a young dog was found in Bedfordshire woods.
The RSPCA were alerted after a dog walker found the body of the young Staffordshire Bull Terrier bitch in a wooded area of a village park known as The Glebe in Toddington village around noon on Monday 14 January 2013.
The body of the brindle and white coloured dog was very fresh and it is likely she was only killed the night before or possibly early that day.
The member of the public made the gruesome discovery after they noticed their own dog behaving strangely in the wooded area of the village park, which was snow covered at the time.
RSPCA inspector Mel Fisher who is investigating, said:"No weapon was found at the scene but there was a lot of blood so it is highly possible whoever did this took her out for a walk in the area specifically so they could kill her and leave her body - but we cannot rule out her being killed elsewhere and then her body being dumped."
