According to a statement released by the City of Cape Town, the trio were detained along with four dogs that were impounded by the Cape of Good Hope SPCA. Mayco Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith said dog-fighting continues to plague communities as it is often used as a means to recruit youth into gangs. Dogfighting is illegal in South Africa.
