Dog found buried alive in Redcar, England with nail in head

_91989262_xrayA dog was found buried alive with a nail in its head in Teesside in what the RSPCA has described as a “horrifying, cruel act”.

A couple walking in Kirkleatham Woods, Redcar, heard whimpering and found the terrier-type animal in a mound of earth at about midday.

It was rushed to a vet but its injuries were so serious it had to be put down.

The RSPCA said more than one person would have been involved.

Inspector Nick Jones said: “In all my ten years working for the RSPCA, I have never known anything so horrifying and inexplicably cruel.

“It’s likely more than one person was involved due to the force needed to inflict such an attack.”

The dog was a white, scruffy-looking terrier type with a curly coat – possibly a Jack Russell or West Highland Terrier cross-breed – aged about seven years old.

Anyone with information is urged to come forward.
