It is hard to believe that somewhere right now, behind closed doors in an ordinary house, on an ordinary street, dogs are being fought to the death. Punters will be standing around as the specially trained animals are let loose from baying for each other’s blood just as their masters have taught them to do. After the fight is over the unlucky dog will get dumped in a canal or abandoned at a roadside while this disgusting practice begins all over again. This “sport” can involve tens of thousands of pounds being gambled in just one match. The RSPCA has said dog-fighting has increased by 400 per cent in the past three years and it believes there are many more unreported cases. With authorities finding it difficult to penetrate these gangs the country needs to drag these thugs from underground by supplying all the information it can about who is responsible.
