Reward for Dog Fighters
Wednesday, 20 October 2010

October 20--  Dogfighting is a crime and the Sweet Onion Animal Society is making a push to save animals from criminals.

"The dogs themselves are hurt, they can die from their wounds.  Dogs, cats and bunnies are used as bait to train the fighting dogs and can be torn apart.  Dogs that won't fight are beaten with chains, kicked, hanged, eletrocuted and recently we had a little puppy in a nearby county that was burned with hot grease because it was being trained to fight and wasn't being aggressive enough.  The cruelty just abounds," says Teresa Yates with SOAPS.

Part of the fallout from the highly publicized Michael Vick dogfighting story is more attention on apprehending people who run dogfighting and Yates says reward money is available.

"We want people to report it if they see or if they know of dogfighting.  They have the potential to stop animal cruelty and other illegal activity, they can earn up to $5,500 in rewards and it can be anonymous" Yates reports.

The numbers to call for the United States Humane Society is 1-877-847-4784 or the local CrimeStoppeers is 1-866-439-6313.
