The RSPCA is appealing for information

A worried member of the public contacted the animal charity after seeing the frightened dog being hit several times on the 10a bus from Walsall to Brownhills.

RSPCA inspector Laura Bryant said: “The caller witnessed a man inflict several blows to the side of the dog, who appeared frightened and had their tail between their legs. The person who witnessed this got off the bus before the man, so they don’t know where he got off - however, he was seen getting on the bus outside the Walsall Wood Factory shop.

“The dog was described as a brindle-coloured Staffordshire bull terrier-type dog.

“We are concerned about the dog’s welfare. We are urging anyone who witnessed this to contact us in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018, in the hope that we can track the dog down and check on them.”

The incident happened on Thursday, October 12, at around 4.25pm.
