CAPE TOWN - The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) believes it has enough evidence to prosecute a Mitchell's Plain man thought to be involved in a dog fighting ring.

The suspect was arrested in Tafelsig last week after concerned residents notified authorities.

Three badly maimed pitbulls were also confiscated from his home.

The animals are currently being treated at the SPCA's Grassy Park headquarters.

The organisation's Wanika Davids said "Our inspectors certainly worked as hard as they possibly can, to make sure that our case is always as strong as can be. We feel that we have irrefutable evidence that a dog fight has taken place because of the scars and the wounds they suffered."
