WARNING, GRAPHIC: Family return home to find pet stabbed

A BUNDABERG family has been left heartbroken after coming home to find their dog had been killed in a horrific way.

The family returned home after 4.30pm and saw the dog's body had been left in their front yard by the steps.

A post on the Bundaberg Forum No Rules group said the dog was still warm and bleeding, indicating the incident happened not long before.

The post said the dog had been stabbed four times.

Kerrie Ainsworth's post said it was concerning something like this would happen in broad daylight.

"Kids play in this yard so the thought of someone entering your yard with a knife in broad daylight where your child plays and is capable of doing this is beyond scary and the owner would love to find out who it was."
