Cumbrian cats trapped for use in training killer dogs

Killer dogs are being set on cats which have been deliberately trapped in west Cumbria.

Police are investigating an incident yesterday morning where a cat had been trapped in a cage at the back of Ellenfoot Drive in Maryport.

A police spokeswoman said: “A tin of tuna had been put into the cage to entice the cat inside. Once inside it gets trapped. Fortunately, on this occasion, someone saw the cat and released it. It would appear cats are being sought to train dogs to kill. We had a similar incident in Workington a while ago.”

Police told owners to be careful when letting their cats out. They would like to speak to a man seen walking two Lurcher-type dogs in the area yesterday morning.

Contact them on 101.

Should the Lakes become a World Heritage Site?

Of course. It's one of the world's most special places

No. It'll bring too many restrictions. It won't help anything

I'm still to be convinced. Need to know more about the benefits
