The Torrevieja dog pound has reported that a bulldog has been stolen from their premises, and a seeking the assistance of the public to try to track it down.

The concern is not that the dog named Atila has now found a home, but rather is to be used in an illegal dog fight, possibly to the death, as has so tragically happened so many times before.

Anybody who spots the black bulldog with white body features and a white stripe on its nose, or can offer any information as to the dogs whereabouts, is asked to contact Torrevieja local police to report their suspicions.
