Dog Tortured And Burned To Death In Sheffield
Police are appealing for help from the public after a dog was tortured and killed in Sheffield.
The body of the badly beaten Staffordshire bull terrier was found on a path off Manor Laith Road in the Skye Edge area of the city.
Officers believe after being severely beaten, the light-coloured male dog was tied to a tree and set on fire sometime between February 18 and 24.
Police said they believe the dog "suffered terribly" before it died.
Now officers are trying to trace the dog's owners as well as the perpetrators.
"Police would like to speak to anyone that may have seen this dog in the area at this time, or who may have lost a dog that fits this description," a spokesman said.
:: Anyone with any information should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 488 of 24 February 2013. Alternatively, people can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

what do you think?
Ahhh poor dog.I grew up with a staffs,they are the friendliest of dogs in the right hands.May this sick individual be caught before they move on to humans aswell
Agree, i read somewhere that people start with animals then move onto children. Sick people/person needs caught, jailed and then jail style justice.
Brave people tying it to a tree.I would give the a holes that did this no mercy but some people torture kids so should I get upset about a dog.
Yes - we SHOULD be upset about abuse, whether of children or animals (or adults for that matter). It's always wrong.
Is that a question? Should you get upset over a dog? The short answer is YES. It is not just a dog. It's life, a life that can experience pain and fear just as any human can. You can both be concerned and upset over both children and animals. My question is why should compassion have a limit? I hope that the authorities catch these 'people'.
Poor poor dog, yes we should all get upset, it has a heart, feelings and feels pain, so unbelievably cruel...btw,I don't think malkie man meant anything bad by his comment, I took it as a despairing statement about the way of the world, he did sympathise over the poor dog....
yes you should get upset Malkie Man because people who can do this to a dog could just as easily do it to a child. They obviously have no feelings. Many serial killers start out by killing animals
Yep we should- most psychopaths begin their career on animals and there's a real correlation between cruelty to animals and cruelty to people.
"should I get upset about a dog." YES Because next time it could be a KID
Thats horrendous. I hope they are caught and plastered over the newspapers.

No doubt they will get off with some Micky mouse fine aswell
I think they need to be imprisoned for this, if they are caught, It's hideous to do this to anything dog, human or otherwise.
What sort of a country do we live in there are some very sick people out there.
This is just so bad the poor dog probably trusted the monsters who did this to it horrendous
When they find whoever did this, do to them what they did to this poor animal, how can anyone be so cruel to an animal, death is to good for this low life
It was horrible and i hate cruelty of any kind, but you're talking daft stuff when you say " do to them....". Don't misunderstand me, i wouldn't mind them getting a couple of punches but you go too far.
the EVIL vermin responsible for this, should have EXACTLY the same treatment done to them. no question about it. anybody that abuses/kills children or animals is pure evil and doesn't deserve to live.
johnny i totally agree , they should hang them from the same tree the dogs were burned.. pure evil
Guys get a grip! It's wrong to do this to a dog but to wish more violence! C'mon now. I think they should be punished too but this is silly stuff.
this is sick and the people that have done this should be found and put away for a very long time and if we still had capital punishment they should be put down as they will go on to other sick things and children are not safe when these people are around they are a danger to us all find them quick and deal with them a eye for a eye
Karma will kick some butts big time over this - GOOD!
What a shame -poor wee beastie. I so hate this sort of cruelty to animals and people - so difficult to understand!
Mate, what are you on about? We eat Pigs, Sheep, Cows etc but it doesnt mean we can tie them up and torch them for cheap thrills..
Christos, is that you again?
the sicko who did this will eventually hurt human beings. if the sicko is caught he will only be fined our laws have to change and our judges given more power... should some-one who can do such a thing to an animal live. i dont think so...
The person or person`s involved in this terrible deed will have to leave the country .The lady who put the cat in the wheelie bin for a misguided joke ,her life is a living hell because of animal lovers.
