Unknown persons between Saturday and Sunday burned a dog in the area of Triq il-Qasbi, San Gwann, the locality's local council said this afternoon.

In condemning the barbaric act, the council urged the police to investigate and arraign whoever was responsible. It also urged anybody having any information on what had taken place to come forward.

Mayor Rene Savona Ventura said he found the dog on Sunday evening. He said it appeared to have been put in a bag and set on fire. The position of the dog's mouth indicated it had been alive.
