Police Plettenberg Bay arrested ten people in connection with illegal dogfights at the weekend.
Eight Pit Bull Terriers have been confiscated. Two of the animals were seriously injured. The arrests were made on a farm at Ladywood.
Police spokesperson Malcolm Pojie says they acted on information received from the public. They found two dogs fighting in a cage erected in the living room of the farm house. All the animals have been handed over to the Animal Welfare.
The suspects hail from Cape Town, Johannesburg, East London and Queens Town. They received bail of one-thousand-500 rands each and will appear in court on Thursday.
