18 missing cats torn to pieces in illegal blood sport
18 cats had been snatched from the streets by gangsters whose dogs tore them to pieces. The animal welfare charities have warned all the cat owners to be extra vigilant after fresh reports of pets being stolen to be used in a barbaric illegal blood 'sport'.
Five cats from the same street have gone missing last weeks and are said to be used for illegal blood 'sport' where they are killed by fighting dogs. The cats are put in cages or wheelie bins before pairs of savage dogs are introduced and encouraged to maul them. It is probably the way used to prepare the terriers for illegal dog fights, training them to kill. The latest cat thefts took a place in Blackburn, after reports of 'cat coursing' have increased in many northern towns, with incidents in Darlington, Doncaster and Scotland.
