Police have launched a public appeal for information following the death of a dog, which was found dumped on a Sydney street with horrific injuries last month.
The badly injured animal, which police say is a two-year-old Kelpie cross, was found on the corner of Silverdale and Elton roads at Silverdale on June 28.
“She had multiple injuries and her muzzle had been taped shut,” NSW Police said.

A shocked motorist who found the dog rushed her to a nearby vet, however sadly she died before arriving.
“The poor dog was alive, with her mouth taped shut and clearly visible bloodied fresh wounds from a dog fight or some similar disgusting act,” Lauren Davis, the motorist who found the animal, wrote in a post on Facebook.
“We were able to remove the tape and get her to the vet, but she had passed away by the time we arrived.
“This is not entertainment – it is inhumane, vile and downright evil… We at least hope in her last moments she felt some comfort and warmth”.
Officers from Nepean Police Area Command are continuing to investigate the matter and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
In particular, officers would like to speak with the driver of a white late-model Toyota Hilux who was seen in the area at the time the dog was located.
