Men Charged After 36 Puppies Found In Cars
Some 36 puppies have been recovered from two cars in Dublin as part of an animal cruelty investigation.
Twenty-five Jack Russells and a number of cocker spaniels, springer spaniels, terriers, beagles and labradors were discovered when police stopped two cars on the Old Malahide Road in Coolock on Tuesday.
It is believed the dogs had been brought into the country from the UK and were to be sold on the black market for several thousand euros.
The puppies were found in boxes in the rear of both vehicles.
Officers from the Dublin Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals have taken the animals into quarantine.
Two men, one in his 20s and the other in his 30s, were arrested at the scene and taken to Coolock Police Station.
They have been charged in connection with the incident and will appear before Dublin District Court early next month.
