RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty said Queensland has had a spree of acts of cruelty against animals in recent months.

A fox terrier puppy was allegedly stolen and tortured with a pocket knife and secateurs in Moranbah, near Mackay.

"We must treat this seriously as a society.  Torturing an animal is only one step away from torturing a human' the links have been clearly established."
