Woman Tries To Rescue Her Stolen Pets - Stumbles Upon A Nightmare

Deniqua Westwood, the proud owner of a 3-year-old St Bernard and 2-year-old bull-mastiff, has been reunited with her beloved pets after they were drugged and stolen by a group of animal thieves. On the morning after the theft, Ms. Westwood woke up to find no sign of her four-legged family members.

This terrifying discovery prompted the veteran businesswoman to take to social media, sounding the alarm about the disappearance of her pets and offering £20,000 to anyone who helped locate her dogs.

Close to a week later, Ms. Westwood found the two animals after two local dog walkers, Stephen Rainford and his partner Allison, told her to check a decrepit farmhouse close to Wigan, Lancashire.

Although she was skeptical, Ms. Westwood drove out to the farmhouse. As soon as she stepped out of the car, she heard a very familiar bark, prompting the fearless woman to jump the farm’s fence and race towards the farmhouse. As she got closer, the two dogs jumped out of the building towards her.

Since finding her dogs, Ms. Westwood has opened up about her decision to enter the farmhouse and the horrifying things she found inside. This is what Ms. Westwood told journalists from the Metro:

“The farm was down the bottom of an overgrown one-track lane. When I reached it I got out and called for the dogs, but couldn’t hear anything. Just as I was about to get back into the car I heard Walter’s bark."

"I couldn’t believe it. He came sprinting out of a farm building. A few seconds later Betty followed him. I was in floods of tears. I was really more panic than happiness though because I thought that there might be someone in there with them. I jumped over the fence and managed to get them into the car.

I was on the phone to Stephen – who had spotted them and got in touch – and I was telling him that he would have to come and get me if someone blocked me on the lane. I’ve never had a week like it. I should write a book. It was an absolute hell-hole inside. We found in the centre of the whole site a tiny makeshift stable full of dog s**t. They must have managed to get out by chewing through some loose wall boards and that’s when someone spotted them.

I was crying my eyes out. Everything was bolted and padlocked in there. The grass was flat where a vehicle had obviously been. Honestly, it was terrible.

There were cells inside, each one padlocked there must have been about 20 locks. It looks like other dogs have been there, you can see where they have been. They had been in there for five days I think, so God knows what they were planning on doing with them.”

Following the traumatic incident, Ms. Westwood reached out to local police to tell them what she found in the farmhouse. According to The Metro, police are unconcerned by the crime and have not yet dispatched anyone to the rural property.
