Illegal puppy farms in Co Tyrone prompt warning
Police in Co Tyrone have issued a warning about illegal puppy farms operating in the area.
Posting on their Facebook page, Dungannon PSNI revealed how the cruel puppy farmers make their sales.
"Answer the advert, then call the random unregistered mobile to get directions.
"On arrival at the house don't worry about the lack of lights on in the house, the rest of the family is just out at the min.
"Come on round the back, they're here, sorry there are no lights.
"Two hundred quid, there's your dog. Make the most of the week you'll have with the pup, it'll be dead within seven days from a Parvovirus, not to mention the hundreds of pounds of vets fees," the PSNI warned potential buyers.
"We are currently investigating a number of these in the Coalisland area.
"It's all about the easy money and the knowledge that so few will come back after the dog dies or report it to ourselves.
"If you have information regarding who is involved in this practice then drop us a PM," the PSNI urged.
