Sen. Const. Daniels said there was no direct evidence of animal cruelty.

“We have to establish if an offence has a occurred, it’s possible the dog has injured itself and perhaps less likely that someone has inflicted the injury.

“As to how, we have nothing to establish its cause.”

The dog was taken to a vet.
