Factually, those who abuse, torture and kill animals will likely and most often times DO go on to commit crimes against humans, making what is happening to Pitbull type dogs EVERYONE’S problem. You, your loved ones and your children are not safe as long as animal abusers exist. Factually, where there is dog fighting there is other crime. Illegal weapons, gambling, narcotics and violence against adults and children. To fight dogs is NOT a “cultural” thing. It is a conscious choice to break the law. Violence against the innocent and voiceless goes on in all communities by people in all tax brackets, ethnicities, genders and ages. This violence is a symptom of a broken society. To deem and ban a “type” of dog as “dangerous” or “inherently dangerous” when they are the ones being victimized by humans is our societies blatant avoidance of the truth. This avoidance of truth makes our communities unsafe for humans and pets and is costing countless lives. Our government, law makers and city officials are not serving tax payers by avoiding the truth. In fact, BSL costs tax payers millions and is ineffective. Stricter laws need to be implemented, funding and manpower must be provided on all levels in order to truly make an impact. In the meantime, it is up to us to do what we can to end abuse and discrimination. We encourage you all to research the law makers and city officials in your cities and counties who support banning Pitbull type dogs (BSL) and see to it they are made aware that discrimination is intolerable and will lose your vote. If you suspect dog fighting or abuse of any kind call 911 and 1-877-TIP-HSUS. If someone doesn’t respond, keep calling, go to the press. Do whatever it takes. The Humane Society provides good information on their site about dog fighting. Here’s a link. http://m.humanesociety.org/…/fa…/dogfighting_fact_sheet.html. The more you know, the more you can educate others. For those of you who don’t know in October 2014 the FBI made animal abuse a top tier felony. That is an ENORMOUS step in the right direction.
