A woman claims to have seen a dog taped across the mouth with thick silver sticky tape and shut in a car.
Sam Emptage was in The Co-operative underground car park off Gillingham High Street at around 1pm yesterday, when she saw what she described as two Staffordshire Bull Terrier type dogs shut in one of the cars.
Miss Emptage said: “There were two staff dogs, and one had its mouth taped up with silver tape.
“The other dog was slightly smaller and panting. Only the passenger side window was open, and just a tiny bit.”
The mum was in a rush to drop her son off at nursery but rang what she believed was an RSPCA number to report what she saw.
The car was blue and she stood by and gave its registration number whilst on the phone.
She added: “I’ve got two big dogs myself and would never dream of doing that to them.”
However an RSPCA spokeswoman said they have no record of a complaint about two dogs left in a car in Gillingham being made to their national cruelty line yesterday.
She said: “It would be something we would take very seriously and urge anyone who comes across something of this kind to ring us on 0300 1234 999.”
