RSPCA inspectors said the vice was a heavy duty tradesman’s vice

The body of a drowned dog has been found weighted down in a North Yorkshire river.

The animal was discovered in the River Ouse near Overton by staff from the RSPCA in York on Tuesday.

Officers described the male Staffordshire bull terrier cross as elderly, of a creamy colour with a docked tail.

The dog was found in the water, attached to a canvas bag containing a heavy duty metal vice.

Insp Gill Corder said: “The vice was extremely heavy and we think it was used to pull this poor animal under the water and drown him.

“It would have been a horrible way to die, and whoever did this is guilty of vile and completely unnecessary cruelty.”

Anyone with information has been asked to contact the RSPCA.
