In the village of Cranfield, located in Bedfordshire, England, the mutilated bodies of three dogs were discovered stuffed into garbage bags or just lying along a rural roadside. The disturbing discovery was made on Tuesday night by a concerned citizen.
According to the Mirror, the three dogs were identified through their foreign microchips, indicating the dogs had been imported into Britain, according to the League Against Cruel Sports, which has offered a £5,000 ($6,926) reward for information.
“We suspect these poor animals suffered serious physical and mental suffering while being torn apart in illegal dog fights,” stated Chris Luffingham, director of the League Against Cruel Sports. “Dogs involved in dog fighting suffer terrible injuries, both in the fights themselves and at the hands of their vicious owners. Most will die in t he ring or soon after from their injuries.”
Two of the dogs were mastiffs and the third was a bully breed. Authorities stated two of the dogs had their ears cropped, and one of the dogs had his teeth filed down suggesting he had been used as a bait dog and left unable to defend himself. Dog fighting has been banned in the United Kingdom since 1835. Tragically, not unlike the United States where it is also illegal, the heinous “sport” and horrific form of dog abuse remains a growing problem.
