The Deadly Violence with Dog Fighting

One of the cruelest and deadliest games I’ve ever seen! You will find this deadly game in inner city alleys, quiet suburban backyards, and isolated locations. Scarred pit bulls on chains waiting for their turn in the pit! You will find dogs maul each other until one of them is unwilling or unable to fight and worst sometimes the fight will go on till one of the animals is dead!

The appeal of dog fighting's violent nature to gamblers has made this bloody and brutal game a popular pastime since early 1800s and today dog fighting remains one of cruelest exploitation of animals. Dog fighting is also associated with other illegal activities and crime such as money laundering and drug trafficking.

Dog fighting is against the LAW!

It’s hard to get figures on how many dogs are suffering from these kinds of violent activities. The dogs used in these kinds of activities can, while victims can also be very dangerous because they are raised to be brutally aggressive. Fighting dogs are not only a treat to other animals but to people as well. If dog fighting is present in your community, your children and pets are also at risk for attack form fighter dogs.

Whether losing or winning every dog fight can be a dog's last fight! Broken bones, deep bite wounds and internal injuries are some of the injuries a dog can get from these fight if not death. Sadly, even if they survive the fight alive their injuries are usually not being treated so I will not be surprised if those dogs die from blood loss or internal injuries.

So how can we help those poor animals?

There are still states where dog fighting is only a misdemeanor. This kind of blood sport is a menace to our community and despite the fact that it is already considered illegal in all 50 states there are still people doing it! 48 states have already made dog fighting a felony crime so if you really want to help, you can write to your state legislators and urge them to make it a felony.

We also ask you to spread this information to your friends and family. By doing this you will increase public awareness of the gruesome violence of dog fighting.

Dog fighting is an issue that should be taken seriously. You may want to display our dog fighting article to your community website.
Lastly, if you think that dog fighting is going on in your own neighborhood, alert your local authorities!

That’s it for now. I’ll post more information about dog fighting later. We need to do our part to stop dog fighting!
