- Utter scum bags
3 Traveler thugs threaten and steal a couple’s rescue dog in Brighton.
This happened near where I live and walk my dog and it just cuts me to the core that people can behave this way.
Please share this far and wide single-track so Pip can get home to her family. She’s very distinctive.Posted 8 months agomattbeeSubscriber
My sister has 3 rescued ex race greyhounds. She often gets asked by guys with a particular accent about them & always says that they were retired because of leg breaks, that sort of thing so they are no good at running. (Not true of course, Kenny won loads of races & is still fast as hell despite being a bit old). It seems to put them off nicely, since they basically want them for hare coursing so if they can’t run they are useless.Posted 8 months agodovebikerMember
We’ve had a couple of incursions locally of the “Irish Caravan Club”, generally they break into someones land, trash the place, petty crime and generally thievery rockets in the area. Their latest wheeze is to buy an ex-utilities vehicle, park up in a quiet close, lift up a drain cover or manhole and wait until someone leaves their house. Creates a lively discussion on the local FB group, including those who accuse others of “tarring with the same brush” “racism” and so forth…I just wish they’d ****-off and die to use their language. Anyone need some tarmac doing?Posted 8 months agoesselgruntfuttockMember
Really hope the police take a proper interest in this.
Sorry Onzadog but this won’t be happening. The cops & travellers don’t mix in any capacity.
Some pikeys rocked up & parked their caravans on the land next to the prison I worked in, a few years ago. The land was crown property, IE, was prison grounds. The police did naff all to move them on. They’ never be interested in a stolen dog.Posted 8 months agotakisawa2Subscriber
The Fantastic news that Pip is home safe.
As for these thugs who masquerade as “travellers”, they must be as much of an annoyance & embarrassment to genuine traveller folk.
Sadly, they appear to be above the law in some cases. Police simply don’t have the resources to adequately deal with them.
The article goes on to say they eventually dumped the caravan locally. It sets a worrying precedent though, when even the Police won’t enter a travellers compound.Posted 8 months ago
