Clarke condemns cruel attack on dog

Alliance Councillor Patrick Clarke has condemned the cruel attack on a dog in Newcastle, after it was found with burns to its skin.

It is believed the harmful liquid was poured over the dog in the Burren Meadow area of Newcastle between 7pm and 9pm last Thursday, September 18.

Alliance Councillor Patrick Clarke said: “I am totally appalled by the recent alleged case of animal cruelty in Newcastle, when a defenceless dog was subjected to a harmful liquid being poured over the animal resulting in burns to the dog’s skin.

“The incident is an absolute despicable and sickening act and form of animal cruelty which I totally and utterly condemn.

“Anyone who would carry out such a cruel and criminal act causing injuries to the dog has no regard for the animal’s welfare and needs to be brought before the courts and I would appeal to anyone with information to contact the PSNI on the non-emergency number 101.”
