Milan, March 19 - Police on Tuesday arrested 75
people across northern Italy and in Rome in relation to alleged
international drug trafficking, including via the use of dogs as
drugs mules, and other crimes.
The suspects, minors and adults of Latino origin, are
thought to belong to 'padillas', or gangs, operating in Italy
with alleged links to south American drugs cartels.
They could now face charges of criminal association, drug
trafficking and illegal weapon possession.
Investigations show that the gangs used big dogs - St
Bernards, Great Danes, Labradors, French Mastiffs and Italian
Mastiffs - as drug mules, making them ingest around 1.25 kg of
pure cocaine before departure and then killing them to extract
the drug upon arrival.
Some 50 dogs are thought to have been used in this way.
