Anyone convicted of involvement in dog-fighting to receive a custodial sentence.

Although dog-fighting in the UK has been illegal for many years it continues due to the underground nature of those involved. As part of the 'training regime' for fighter dogs, pets are often stolen from gardens etc to be used as 'bait dogs'. They are thrown to the fighter dogs to be torn apart.

Fining those convicted of being involved in dog-fighting is not a deterrent due to the vast amounts of money involved in dog-fighting circles. The only way to address this vile 'blood sport' is to give AUTOMATIC custodial sentences to ANYONE be it those who steal pets to be used as bait dogs, fighter dog owners, organisers and those who attend fights i.e. EVERYONE involved.
