One of my game friends on facebook has just messaged me to say that there are gypsies who are living right near them and they have a dog that looks like it's starving and she hasn't seen them feed or water it in over a week and it's just lying there on a bit of carpet. There are no bowls near it not even water. I told her to phone the RSPCA but she says she has but the lines are busy and she's also scared of repercussions. I feel really upset, surely they aren't allowed to just starve a dog and nobody do anything. Can anybody suggest anything please and do you think the RSPCA would act even though they are gypsies?
