Owner traced in dog drown hunt

Star, 5/3/1997

Gardai have identified the owner and breeder of two greyhounds found drowned – with concrete blocks tied to their necks – two weeks ago. Shocking pictures in the Star showed how the dogs were weighed down and dumped in a Co. Cork river. Gardai have been able to pinpoint the owner from ID numbers tattooed on the hounds’ inner ears. The dogs were found washed up on the banks of the river Ilen near Skibbereen. Each was thought to be aged about two.
