London Police and the London Humane Society are both investigating following another disturbing case of animal cruelty.
In this latest case, an animal – believed to be a small dog – was found late last week in a parking lot near Adelaide Street and Lorne Avenue, just north of Dufferin Avenue. The citizen who made the discovery called police, who contacted the humane society.
“At this point in time, based on veterinarian examinations, we believe that it’s possibly a small dog,” Executive Director of the Humane Society Judy Foster tells AM980.
“The animal has been beheaded, skinned, the blood’s been drained form the body. There’s puncture wounds in the body as well. It’s very disturbing that this has been found. We don’t know when these injuries were inflicted. If the animal was alive or not. And it’s also incredibly disturbing because this isn’t the first time in the last few months that we’ve had a situation like this.”
Foster says a necropsy is scheduled to hopefully find out more details. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
The case follows similar discoveries in London, including two skinned and beheaded coyotes found in February, a partially skinned cat in July, and a dead goose that was stabbed multiple times and left on the London Humane Society’s doorstep – also in July.
