Dog fighting Index
A dogfight is a cruel activity in which two dogs are forced to fight for
the sake of human entertainment and profit. There is absolutely NO reason in a
civilized society for such greed and senseless abuse to continue. Pit-bulls,
Rottweilers, or Dobermans are commonly used in fights. These normally sweet
animals are raised under horrific conditions and abusively trained to be
aggressive. This in turn gives these lovely animals the horrible reputation that
they have today. Humane officers and other law enforcement agents often break up
illegal Dogfighting rings and confiscate Dogfighting paraphernalia, including
treadmills used to build the dog's endurance and drugs used to numb pain from
injuries or to "jazz up" the dogs. They often find mesh bags, which are used to
suspend kittens, rabbits, puppies, and other small prey above the dogs to
encourage a "fighting spirit." Often times dogs and kitten are stolen from
loving homes and used to bait fighting dogs.
often find many dead and dying dogs, too. Dogs who do survive often sustain
serious injuries, such as broken bones and crushed cartilage. Many suffer and
die from blood loss, shock, dehydration, exhaustion, or infection hours or days
after a fight.
Dogfighting is illegal in all 50 states
and the District of Columbia. It is a felony offense in all but four
states - Idaho, Iowa, West Virginia, and Wyoming - where it is a misdemeanor.
Because Dogfighting is a felony in most states, Dogfighting rings are difficult
to infiltrate and are run by extremely dangerous people.
