Witness call over dog’s burn death

Geraldton Guardian

The RSPCA is offering a $1000 reward for information leading to the prosecution of the person who allegedly set a small dog on fire in Geraldton this week.

The dog, Jack, had to be put down on Wednesday after succumbing to “horrendous” burn injuries, allegedly inflicted during an incident in Gertrude Street on Monday night.

RSPCA WA Chief Inspector Amanda Swift urged anyone with information about the attack to contact the Cruelty Hotline and report what they know.

“Somebody in Geraldton knows who did this to Jack,” she said.

“I’m asking them to do the right thing and come forward to tell us who that person is.

“This innocent dog suffered immensely and lost his life because of what this person did to him.

“That is not acceptable, and whoever did this must be held accountable for their actions.”

Reports to the Cruelty Hotline can be made anonymously.

Anyone who can provide information about the incident is urged to contact 1300 287 3589
