Dogs and rodent found entirely skinned in South Yorkshire

The Royal Society for the Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals is asking for the public's assistance after two dogs were found skinned by someone walking in on Rotherham on the evening of Thursday, October 22.


The two bodies were found next to a black trash bag.


“What’s not clear is whether the bodies have been dumped together in the bag and then dragged out and predated on by wildlife, or whether they were skinned before being dumped in this area," RSPCA inspector Jennie Ronksley stated.


“It’s a really shocking sight and I’m extremely concerned that these animals may have suffered before their untimely deaths so I’d like to hear from anyone with any information," she said. "I can barely tell what species the bodies are let alone any further details like their breed, so we’re in the dark and could really do with the support of the public."


There was only a trace amount of fur left on the bodies of the dogs and from that, she can only speculate that one was black in color and the other was cream.


Found with the bodies of the dogs was the body of a rodent which had also been skinned.


“It seems strange for more than one animal to be found like this if there’s an innocent explanation so this seems very suspicious to me."


Anyone with information about the matter is asked to call the RSPCA appeal line at 0300 123 8018
