  1. Good Job Law Enforcement! It is especially difficult to catch these neanderthals redhanded.

    To the Pit Nutters, behold…these are the Dogmen that created your beloved breed….One step above a pedophile on the social rung!

  2. Did you notice the chains these dogs are on? Compare that to the one your neighbor uses for his pit bull.

  3. These busts need to escalate.

    There are Michael Vicks in every state

    And many of them are "hiding in plain site" the way Vick did, claiming they just "love the breed" and are "responsible breeders" breeding pit bulls to sell as pets

    Those lies worked for a long time.

    That's why the breeders fight against breeder licensing, mandatory spay & neuter (cause they'd need to get licensed.)

    They don't want any documentation, inspections, rules. They want to stay under the radar as they have been, telling stories about "responsible breeding" to keep away the authorities.

    That pretty much goes for ALL breeders, whether it is the dogfighters or puppy mills, or the AKC "show breeders" that don't want to pay taxes on their income.

  4. “They are worth a fair amount of money. Pups go for $350, $400, $500. And those with champion-type bloodlines can go for $1,500 to $3,000,”

    But…But…. You can’t tell a dog will be aggressive from it’s genetics!

  5. “including some from Latin America. “

    The American pit bull breeders are breeding and selling to countries all over the world.

    This is huge money, doesn’t get taxed thanks to no regulation by our dumb states

    and THIS is why they form all these “We Love Pit Bulls” and “Pit Bulls are Great and Love People”and “Anti Pit Bull Racism” groups. They want to keep the cash flowing in with no regulation!

    Talk a lot of emotional manipulation and propaganda, and they can get naive reporters and legislators opposing laws and HELPING the pit bull breeders keep breeding and preying on these dogs and cashing in

    And hurting the public.

    The really sick thing is that HUMANE groups like Best Friends and Bad Rap have gotten sucked in to helping these pit bull breeders and their industry (for reasons that often have to do with financial as well)

  6. It should be noted that many of the famous gamedog breeders in the US are selling their dogs to people overseas, where dogfighting is legal….they then can game test the dogs, and see how they do in the box. Winning fighting dogs can then be bought back, along with their fighting “pedigree”. The dog can then command high prices as a stud dog, because he is a proven winner. Its all legal, and another way the pit bull fanciers get around the law and still make money on fighting dogs.

  7. The airlines stopped shipping the bird fighters’ birds to other countries.

    They need to stop shipping the fighting dogs.

    How can the airlines that do this get traced?

  8. Just to point out that… in 2007 Congress and President Bush passed a law making it a Federal Felony to traffic fighting dogs accross state lines or internationally.

    The Law passed the US Senate unanamously.

  9. The “disturbing” video has been removed from the newspaper web site. Could it be that people were “disturbed” by the images of these fighting dogs and complained? My spidersense tells me that it was probably the ProPitters that complained and had it removed. Can’t show the carnage — why, it’s just too disturbing for little Johnny to see!
