Take Dog Fighting Seriously

Target: U.S. Governors
Sponsored by: ASPCA

Although dog fighting is a felony in all 50 United States, there are still some states that don't take it seriously.

As with any other illegal underground activity, it's impossible to
determine how many people may be involved in dog fighting, but
estimates are in the tens of thousands. This brutal blood sport is a
pastime for rich and poor alike, and dog fighting has been reported in
urban, suburban and rural settings in all regions of the country.


And unfortunately, because dog fighting is such a secretive
enterprise, it makes it difficult for law enforcement to infiltrate. A
dog fight investigation requires many of the same skills and resources
as an undercover narcotics investigation, a challenge for many local
agencies.


Tell your state governor that law enforcement should have the
resources and motivation to take this crime seriously. Also, there
should be local or state task forces to ensure a collaborative approach
to ending this heinous sport forever.
