Three Michigan residents who tried to bring a pit bull to Canada to sell, were turned away at the tunnel by Customs Officers.
Officials say that the vehicle the three were in was referred for examination on April 1st. During the exam, an undeclared dog was found in the hatchback. Further examination revealed a contract of sale for the dog, valuing him at US$4,000, and registration paperwork describing the dog as a purebred.
They say that information found indicated that the purchaser in Canada encouraged the breeder not to declare the dog as a pit bull due to legislation restrictions against the pit bull breed, and also to evade mentioning that the dog was coming in for the purpose of sale.
The dog was seized, the terms of release paid were $1,037.68, and the travellers with the dog, were returned to the United States.
