Send Dog Fighters to Jail Says New Poll

Published on May 4, 2010 by   ·   No Comments

More than two-thirds (69%) of people think a prison sentence is the most appropriate punishment for an offence where a dog is set onto another animal to fight, according to new polling figures published today.

The poll, by YouGov for the League Against Cruel Sports, comes as the animal welfare charity launches its ‘Fighting Dogs Campaign’ to highlight what it claims is the cruelty of dog fighting, badger baiting and, controversially, terrier work usually associated with hunts. The League – which campaigned for eighty years for the ban on hunting – claims there is little difference between dog fighting and fox hunting.
