The RSPCA is calling on the community to help find the person responsible for another sickening attack on a puppy in the Hunter.
A male staffy-cross is in a critical condition, after being found with head injuries and multiple fractures, in national parkland at Cessnock.
The RSPCA says a concerned member of the public called last night after seeing the dog, believed to be between one and two years old, by the side of the road.
Wet weather hampered search efforts last night, but the pup was located this morning, and taken to the RSPCA’s Rutherford facility.
It follows the brutal bashing deaths of a litter of unwanted puppies in the area last month.
