Dogs put down after illegal breeding ring in Casey


June 20, 2018 by admin

Three pit bull terriers were destroyed and their owner fined $3184 on 15 offences when he appeared in the Dandenong Magistrates Court in June.

Casey Council disclosed last week the owner was part of an illegal pit bull terrier breeding ring but refused to give further details, including the location of the breeding operation.

Officers inspected more than 280 properties during a six-month council operation from last October.

Council officers seized several dogs and others were surrendered by their owners.

A number of owners were prosecuted for failing to register dogs.

One owner was the man involved in the breeding ring and he pleaded guilty to 15 charges under the Domestic Animals Act.

Casey mayor Sam Aziz called on residents to report any suspicions of illegal dogs.
