26 Now Convicted Of Dog Fighting In Britain

pitpuppyengland-copy.jpgTen more people have been found guilty of dog fighting, bringing the total convictions to 26. (Note: There is video of the news report with stills and audio of the fight. Even so, it’s still hard to watch.)

The RSPCA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) said, “This was one of the longest, most brutal and most highly attended dog fights we have ever come across.” So many people were arrested the police had to commandeer a double-decker bus to take the suspect to jail. The fight lasted almost 2 hours.

The Michigan State University College of Law has a very informative page on dog fighting that covers the history, the training, the culture, the societal cost, the criminal links, laws and legal issues, and evidence, including less obvious things such as the drugs/vitamins/medical supplies used. You can also find out about the signs of dog fighting. And the Humane Society of the United States has a FAQ on dog fighting. (Note: None of the these pages have gruesome photos of dogs showing the barbarism of dog fighting. They do have a wealth of information.)

You can help make a change in your own country by educating yourself and by supporting groups working to end dog fighting.
