Cat owners warned about sick 'baiting'

Cat-lovers have been warned sickos may be snatching their pets to use as live bait in a new breed of Ulster dog fights.

Animal rights campaigners believe stolen moggies are being dangled in front of the devil dogs at organised bouts to stir up their blood-lust.

It’s feared the dogs then tear the helpless felines to shreds before turning on each other.

Campaigners alerted pet-owners to the twisted trend after the shredded remains of cats were found scattered across a field in Bangor, Co Down.
