« Go back
In a 17 month undercover investigation, Spotlight infiltrated one of the biggest dog fighting gangs in Europe, revealing how Northern Ireland is a major centre for breeding and selling pitbulls. It also exposed a football star as an international dog fighter. It captured the savage sport on camera, for the first time in television history, and confronted those involved. The investigation prompted enormous media coverage and led to discussions between NIís First Minister and the Taoiseach on how to prevent the border being used as a back door by dog fighters.
