RSPCA ask for public help to find animal abuser

The man was seen kicking his dog five times during the attack.

RSPCA officers have released an image of a man, seen beating his dog in Lye.

A member of the public contacted the organisation after claiming to see a man walking a tan German Shepherd-type dog along Lye bypass. The report suggested he kicked the animal in the stomach and the head, opposite the junction to Clinic Drive, at around 2.30pm on Monday 23rd November.

Officers are asking any other witnesses, or anyone who recognises the man, to contact them.

Speaking to the Stourbridge News, RSPCA Inspector Josef Burgess said: “We are appealing to anyone with any information about this incident to come forward and let us know as we are concerned about the safety of the dog.

“The man was seen kicking his dog, who was on a lead, in the stomach four times and once in the head. He was described as a slim white male, around 5ft 9ins tall, with dark hair and a thin face. He was wearing a black tracksuit with the hood up, a black quilted coat, and trainers and he had a small black Adidas bag."

The member of the public who reported the incident also took a photo of the man and his dog, which officers hope will refresh people's memory. Anyone who the incident, or who can identify the man, is asked to contact the RSPCA (in confidence) on 0300 123 8018.
