who investigators believe were killed in illegal dog fights – have been found
deserted on a rural English roadside.

Cranford – between Milton Keynes and Bedford – the dogs had microchips which indicate they were imported, in what is

fighting suffer terrible injuries, both in the fights themselves and at the
hands of their vicious owners.”

determined to expose and help prevent dog fighting in the UK and we are asking
for people to contact our Animal Crimewatch team with any information on this
dreadful incident.”

up to their deaths.

Luffingham said
The League Against Cruel Sports is ‘determined’ to end the cruel practice, once
and for all.

He added: “We
need to bring an end to the untold suffering dog fighting inflicts on man’s
best friend.”
