A man who repeatedly stamped on his dog's head as it cowered helpless has been captured committing the horrendous act on CCTV.

The incident occurred on Tuesday November 18 at Watermead Works, Slater Lane, Bolton at around 4.30pm as the man was taking the dog for a walk.

The RSPCA is appealing for help to trace the man who was spotted attacking the dog, which was heard yelping in pain by witnesses.

RSPCA Inspector Charlotte Melvin said: “We want to trace the man and dog in the CCTV.

“The man appears to kick the dog multiple times in the face and then grab the dog around the mouth and hold it.

“We don’t know who this man is, and presume the dog is still in his care.

“If you have any specific information about this person then please call the RSPCA’s inspector appeal line."

The dog appears to be a mastiff or boxer-cross and had a red harness on.

The dog’s reaction was heard by people in a nearby building, who checked their CCTV and contacted the RSPCA.

RSPCA Inspector Melvin said: “The man appears to be wearing a dark jacket with a hood and blue jeans and to have short, light brown hair. The dog appears to be brindle, with white feet.

“Naturally we are worried about the dog’s welfare at this time. If he [the man] is doing something like this in a public place I’m very concerned about what could be happening behind closed doors. 

"If you know who this person is, please call us. If you recognise it as you, we’d like to hear from you.”

Anyone with information can call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
