‘It will never be stopped’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPECIAL REPORT -

A CON­CERNED coun­cil­lor be­lieves dog fight­ing will never be stopped in Che­sham.

Ridge­way Coun­cil­lor Derek Lacey had to call the po­lice him­self when he wit­nessed il­le­gal dog­fight­ing tak­ing place in Wind­sor Road.

Since four men were con­victed of dog fight­ing of­fences in 2011 and 2012, Mr Lacey said he has not seen the crime in the town – but he said that does not mean it is not hap­pen­ing.

He added: “I never re­ally think it stopped, I think they just move venue and they are more care­ful. That’s what hap­pens. Dog fight­ing will never stop, there’s just too much money in it. You’re never go­ing to stop it.”
