Ritual killing of dogs has become a scourge and the time has come for an animal court to deal with animal cruelty.
Manager of the Lazaretto-based Animal Control Centre, Curtis Thompson, told the SATURDAY SUN he was concerned about the rise of blood sports in the land, with cockfighting and dogfighting now common practices.
Thompson said that ritual killing was an emerging and worrying development.
“Sad to say, ritual killing is now with us and that is a concern . . . . Not that long ago a dog was tortured in St Lucy and there have been other instances.
