Quote from a dog fighter: “The hardest thing is to get enough dogs and cats to use as bait during training…”. You can see the remainder of the words on the FB notice online. It comes from 2017 but it as valid today as it was then.
It is chilling. Cat owners have to be switched on to this sort of thing. The first call on a cat guardian is their cat’s safety. I hope and expect that dog fighting is quite unusual and it is illegal in many countries including in the US and UK.
However, it is underground and it can be undetected by law enforcement. The people involved in it are unscrupulous, immoral types who have a total disregard for animal welfare. They are the sort who like to shoot feral cats as well. They are ignorant an uneducated and have been indoctrinated in the ways of animal cruelty within the family and so this criminal behavior is handed down from generation to generation.
