Ian Paisley’s reaction to last night’s Spotlight on dog fighting? He “urged the authorities in Dublin to review legislation being exploited by gangs involved in illegal cross-border dog trading”. Some detail from the Panorama report Pete noted yesterday:
The man from Dublin’s dog won. The other dog was so badly injured it couldn’t move. I’m not sure what happened to it but I had heard of what The Farmers’ Boys call the Tandragee bath.
The “bath” is apparently world famous in the dog-fighting circuit, it consists of placing the loser or a badly injured dog in a barrel of water and holding it under until it drowns.
These animals fight to the death for their handlers and this is how they’re repaid.
