Durban a home for illegal Dog-Fighting Rings. Dog-fighting rings are operating in at least nine locations in the greater Durban area, with owners in three suburbs appearing to be at risk of having their pets stolen for use in fights which can command bets of up to R300 000.

This is according to sources familiar with the matter after the Daily News’s report on the theft of dogs in the city on Tuesday

Chesterville, uMlazi, Merebank, Phoenix, Mariannhill, Hammarsdale, Pinetown, Mayville, Hillcrest and other suburbs are apparently places for dog-fighting rings, said animal rescuers.

David Hardwick, a partner at Serendi- Pitty Rescue, said dog-fighting had become more frequent and took place mainly on the weekends in places not easily accessible to the police.

“There are three levels of fighting. The entry level is your kids in uMlazi who get dogs and make them fight near a tavern. They are usually promised cellphones, airtime or a pair of takkies.
