Animal Shelter Thief targets Pit bulls

Pit bulls are among the most dangerous and most fierce type of breed in the canine world. But for the third consecutive weeks, pit bulls at the Columbia Animal Shelter are being stolen by probably the same thief who was captured by the recently installed security camera. The man was wearing a hood that covers much of his face, gloves on his hand, and a loose-fitting dark clothing.

At the moment, there are 16 dogs who were abducted since January 29 including the 5 dogs who were snatched over before 9 p.m. on Saturday, the police said. Pit bulls are favoured by criminals and drug dealers because of their aggressive nature and breed them for illegal dog matches that fight till their death. 

One of the stolen dogs was pregnant. For sure, it is one of their highest priority since this breed can get a good price in the black market of dog fighting.

I am saddened that these people would do such act in order to gain something, disregarding that these dogs have lives of their own and depend mostly to their masters. If this is for animal cruelty, this should be stopped at once.

Anyone with information is asked to contact CRIMESTOPPERS.

It's a pity that there are people who tolerate cruelty to animals. Dogs should be treated humanely, kahit anung breed pa yan.

Here in our place Pit Bulls cost too dearly. Only reach people used to raise this kind of canine pet. Well, in your blog, these dogs were the target of the thief who is very daring and courageous to do this thing. Sooner or later he'll be busted for he's already been identified in the monitoring cam.

A shared concern from RandomThoughts!
