I Oppose Dogfighting

    I remember reading about Vick in the paper and just crying.  Then, I was talking about it with an older black man and he just said "Oh, they are only after him cause he's The Vick."  Then, I did something I was ashamed of:  I backed down and did not...

    I too hate dogfighting and people who do it to make money. They must not have a conscious. It is bad in this state, and sometimes the dogs are turned loose when they are no longer profitable for the owners. These dogs are trained to be visious, and they kill cows and...

    It's Sick!

    You need to understand dogs and humans have been together for so long we've co-evolved. Dogs want nothing more than to please their human masters. To use that to make a dog as mean as possible, then place him into a fight to the death with another dog. It's horrible. Just for...

    It Makes Me Physically Ill to Think of It

    I went nuts when some people started saying that Vick was being persecuted because he was black. I don't care what color his skin is, he was doing something horrific. I have students that I have had to turn in because they admit to using dogs or roosters to fight. I don't...

    All Forms of Animal Cruelty, to Be Honest.

    It's a waste of beautiful creatures. It is not in their nature to be that violent. They are treated in a way so cruel that they have no other way to protect themselves! They are wasted away. This is not a lie, but just thinking about this reduces me to tears.

    Watch Ufc!

    I don't understand why people have to put two innocent dogs into a ring and watch them fight it out.  If you want to see two animals try to kill each othe watch UFC!

    I Want Michael Vick to Go to Jail Today

    Well today is the day of reckoning for Michael Vick.  I hope that he is sentenced to some serious jail time, or there is no justice. If not, I for one will be writing a letter to the judge in charge. I hope what he has done, will not be met with just a couple of whacks with...

    Sick People In This World

    I cannot really discuss this without becoming angry. The people involved in this are absolutely horrible and I cannot think of a punishment severe enough for this. How people can deliberately hurt animals is so far beyond my understanding

    Breaks My Heart

    It breaks my heart to hear or read stories about dog fighting.  It is so cruel.  I had the chance to turn a couple in that live across the street from us for doing this.  The poor little female pit bull kept getting out and coming to our house.  The second...

    Michael Vick & Dmz Two of a Kind

    I say throw them to the dogs! Problem is that, if you have every watched or researched dog-fighting, those men in the pit supervising the pit bulls  are far from scared of them and always remain unharmed.  The dogs are taught to fight...

    Who Does This?

    I do not know how to feel. It seems to me that a lot of black people seem to think this is okay. I don't want to generalize in any way, but I am half black and it upsets me to hear so many people that are part of my race that seem to think this is acceptable. It really makes me...

    Absolutely Horrifying.

    Forcing brainwashed animals to torture each other to death is absolutely abhorrent on so many levels.

    Makes Me Sick to My Stomach

    When I hear stories of dogfighting, I can't help but... ugh, I can't even explain. It just makes me feel sick that someone would be so sick. I don't care what your religion, ethnic background, politics, etc., etc., is. If you facilitate or aid and abet dogfighting, you are a...

    Keep Your Dogs Safe...

    Ok, this is complete hearsay BUT...I heard that family pets kept outdoors are sometimes stolen so that fighting dogs can practice on them. They pull the teeth out of the opposing dog so that it can't defend itself. If that's true isn't that the worst?!

    Who Would Watch A Dogfight?

    There are folks who absolutely boil and blister within because of their repressed rage and obsessive sadistic urges. There's nothing good about the violence that results from such internal poison. But what's weirder and sicker to me? Some loser has violent and sadistic drives...

    I Oppose Dog Fighting...

    ...because it is cruel and barbaric.  And I like dogs.  Plus, it gives pit bulls a bad name, and some of the nicest dogs I've met have been pit bulls.

    It Take's A Sick Mind.

    I dont care how you you look at it, it's just a fact that it take's a sick mind. To take ANY animal and pit them against each other until they maim or kill each other just for thrill and profit take's a sick sob. If they get caught they should not be put in jail as I would rather...

    Dog fighting disgust me.  Unfortunately, it is happening and hopefully the people who finds this amusing and all for it, gets caught and pay the price they deserve.  Animals may not be humans but they do have feelings. I was very pissed when I heard of Michael Vick...
