“The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals [NSPCA] applauds the decision,” said senior inspector Jaco Pieterse.

Fourteen pitbulls were rescued in the raid in Tsakane and 18 were people arrested. Police released five of them.

“We are saddened that eight of the remaining dogs removed during the NSPCA dog fighting bust last week Sunday had to be euthanised by a veterinarian due to the seriousness and extent of their injuries and suffering,” said Pieterse.
