scrapyard owner replaces guard dogs with fighting bulls.
A scrapyard owner in eastern Spain has replaced his guard dogs with two fighting bulls, following a series of break-ins at his business over the last few months.
The thieves would cut the wire and lure his guard dogs outside of the yard before sneaking in and stealing whatever they wanted, he told the local Levante-EMV news website.
Cerveró says the value of the stolen goods, such as “a rear view mirror, a light or a spare wheel,” wasn’t substantial. But the repeated raids caused him major “inconvenience” and cost the lives of four of his guard dogs, which escaped from his compound through the fence and ended up being struck by cars out on the road.
“The bulls can roam around freely in the yard and let’s hope they do their job,” said Emilio Cerveró.
“The bulls can roam around freely in the yard and let’s hope they do their job,” he told TV channel La Sexta. “All I am trying to do is protect my property.”
Cerveró says the burglaries began after the provincial government sequestered part of his land for a new roundabout and replaced what had been a secure wall with a flimsy wire fence.
