“Lets just pray this psycho gets what he deserves; a long stay in a small room; although, I would rather he take a long walk off a short pier! However, he’s out on bail, pending investigations…so if his name & or address gets out…which I bet it does, being Sheffield… I certainly wouldn’t like to be him right now!!”

“Apparently after the police appealed for the name of the dog owner, it wasn’t long before they were found. That was probably down to the power of the internet, drawing like minded people together, on apps like Face Book & Twitter etc. Just think how slow, gaining information like that, could have been; if dependent on media like newspapers alone!! 

A man has been arrested over the death of a dog which was badly beaten, tied to a tree and set alight.

The Staffordshire bull terrier‘s body was found on a path off Manor Laith in Sheffield on Sunday.

South Yorkshire Police and the RSPCA previously said the dog would have suffered a painful death and appealed for information.

A 28-year-old Sheffield man has been arrested on suspicion of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

A police spokesman said the man had been bailed while inquiries continue.
