Animal rescuers are calling for the public to dob in whoever tied a badly injured dog to a tree and scrawled graffiti-like pen markings on his body.

The large male Mastiff was found abandoned and restrained by short rope but alive in Tovey Park, in the south Brisbane suburb of Boronia Heights.

The miserable and skinny canine had bloody ‘puncture injuries’ to his neck and purple marker pen drawings across his back.

It comes just one month after a dead dog was left tied to a tree a few kilometres away with a blunt force trauma wound in a deliberate act of animal cruelty.

The mastiff survived and was rescued by an RSCPA inspector.

The Queensland RSPCA issued a desperate plea for information about the injured animal.

‘Anyone with information about this dog, or who may have seen someone in the area with the dog is urged to contact the RSPCA’s 24/7 emergency hotline,’ said RSPCA Queensland spokesperson Emma Lagoon.

‘It’s absolutely not ok to leave an injured dog tied to a tree. As for the markings, it’s plain disrespectful.

‘As you can imagine, this poor dog is quite scared and is getting all the care he needs right now to hopefully overcome his ordeal and make a full recovery.’

The RSPCA also urged pet owners to let someone know if they were overwhelmed by the responsibility of caring for animals.

‘Please ask for help. We can help rehome pets when people have no other options.’

On the RSCPA’s social media pages followers were appalled at the cruelty shown to the dog.

‘I hope they find who done this and they get jail time,’ a Brisbane woman wrote on Facebook.

‘This is why people don’t like people, how can people be so cruel to an animal as loyal as a dog?’

‘Not gonna say what but they deserve a lot more than jail time,’ a Brisbane man wrote.

‘I’m praying for life changing karma for the individuals responsible,’ another person commented on Facebook.

The body of a male American Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross was discovered tied to a tree in Bald Hills, north Brisbane, just over a week ago on August 14.

A member of the public came across the dog in the bushland across from Tinchi Tamba Boat Ramp.

If you have any information about this injured dog contact the RSPCA’s 24/7 hotline on 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625).
