36 thoughts on “Edward Faron of Wildside Kennels Has Been Charged by Authorities

  1. I had to stop reading. How can pit bull owners continue breeding dogs knowing this goes on? The people who truly care about pits are asking for mandatory neuter/spay laws.

  2. OLD TIMER'S PLAY BOOK POST 1976

    "In an interview today, Edward A. Faron said he was a victim of entrapment, referring to two men who came to his house Monday and said they wanted to buy pit bulls for dog fighting. Faron, 61, said he now realized the two men were undercover officers."

    DENY DENY DENY AND ALWAYS BLAME "THE MAN"! EVEN IF YOU WERE ONCE>>>>

    "convicted of dog fighting and sentenced to a year in jail in Alamance County in June 1989, Faron said he didnít engage in that illegal activity now. He also said he didnít knowingly sell dogs for fighting."

    "Faron, originally from Ohio, said he became involved with training dogs when he returned to the United States after serving in the Vietnam War in 1970."

    START WORKING THE JURY EARLY ON, DROP SUBTLE HINTS TO THE NEWS MEDIA THAT MIGHT GARNER SOME SYMPATHY LATER ON.

    "Faron said he is the legal guardian for Casanova, who turns 19 this month."

    MENTOR SOME YOUNG DUPE TO KEEP THE GAME ALIVE BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY TO KEEP YOUR LEGACY ALIVE.

    "He said he also started the Appalachian Pit Bull Club, which he said has dog shows at the Taylorsville Lions Club Park in Taylorsville."

    FORM A "CLUB" TO SERVE AS A SCREEN FOR YOUR TRUE INTERESTS, BLOOD SPORT.

    "Kimberley Thomson of the Pender County town of Hampstead, who bought a pit bull from Faron and entered pit bulls in dog shows, said she opposed dog fighting and didnít believe Faron was involved in that illegal activity."

    NETWORK WITH THE "LITTLE PEOPLE". THEY WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE ILLUSION OF "LEGITIMACY" AND A PLACE TO DUMP THE UNWANTED UNWORTHY CURS. THEY ARE ALSO GOOD FOR A LITTLE PR IN STICKY SITUATIONS.

    "After the Humane Society of the United States released news of the seizure of the 127 dogs and the charges against Faron and two other people Thursday morning, numerous people involved with pit bulls indicated their support of Faron and their belief in his innocence on Internet blogs."

    MAINTAIN A SLEW OF CHARACTER REFERENCES! ALWAYS REMAIN ON FRIENDLY TERMS WITH THE OTHER VERMIN, I MEAN, YOUR ASSOCIATES. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN "THE MAN" WILL COME A KNOCKING. AND THE YOUNG PUPS WORSHIP THE GROUND DOGMEN SPIT ON, SO CULTIVATE THAT GROUPIE STATUS OF YOURS.

    "In an e-mail to the Wilkes Journal-Patriot, Ms. Thomson called Faron a very compassionate, good hearted, dog loving breeder. Iíve seen for myself how much his animals love him. She called Faron a walking book of information about pit bulls"

    YUP! HE WROTE THE BOOK ALRIGHT! EXCERPT FROM SCUMBAG EDDY'S FICTIONAL BOOK:

    “The gamest dog I ever saw in my life was King David. At ten minutes, his right leg was broken. At
    twenty-three minutes, his left leg was broken. At thirty-seven he scratched on stumps, and at fortyeight
    minutes when he scratched he scratched down one wall and down the other until he got to
    Beau again.” Page 62

  3. This is so very important, I want to make this clear to readers of this blog and anyone else who will listen. Dogfighters are breeding and advertising these dogs in plain sight, all over the internet. Someone here posted a link to the pit bull chat forum, which bills itself as an “educational community of pit bull dog advocates”. In addition to the many young women posting edlessly about rescuing pit bulls, and the posting of “positive press” news stories about pit bulls, there are subforums dedicated to “bloodlines” and “breeding” , where people trade information about the game-bred lines. You would have to be a complete moron to not understand what these people were talking about…they are asking if this or that bloodline (enter the name of a well known fighting bloodline…Bolio, Colby, Jocko, etc.) is “any good”, or would be an “asset to my yard”. What do you think they are talking about?

    Are we all that stupid? Why does the public fall for this? Does anyone really believe that people who keep a “yard” of 15 game bred pit bulls on chains, with an old barrel for a dog house, is breeding them for “family pets”, or that these animals are “show dogs”? How do people who claim to be dedicated to “rescue” and pretend to be animal welfare advocates manage to ignore what right under their noses? Why do virtually ALL of the pit bull advocates tolerate, protect, and enable the “dogmen”?

    Anyone who has lurked on that forum, and who knows anything about the world of dogfighting, knows exactly how to read between the lines, and what these people are talking about. This is felony animal cruelty, and these “educational communities” have welcomed the backyard breeders and dog fighters with open arms.

    Where the hell are the REAL animal welfare advocates? What is wrong with the true dog lovers in this country, that we tolerate this type of in-your-face sadistic cruelty by pretending we don’t see it when its right in front of us?

  4. Either Kimberley Thomson sets a new standard for stupidity or she is part of Ed’s sick inner circle.

  5. these sick twisted psychopathic old timers with admitted dog fighting in their pasts expect us to believe that they have suddenly given up the sport they are so passionate about because it is ILLEGAL?

    they either are NOTHING like the dogs that they admire or they are liars.

    spend anytime on these forums and you will find many discussions about "game" and what exactly it means.

    gameness all comes down to not giving up even in the the face of the most extreme adversity. game means death before quitting. and now all of sudden these fucktards want us to believe that just because this sport that they are so dedicated to has become illegal, they are all going to QUIT?

    so, are these "dogmen" truly cowards that use dogs to make up for their own inadequacies? or are they liars and still fighting their dogs?

  6. “so, are these “dogmen” truly cowards that use dogs to make up for their own inadequacies?”

    Yes.

  7. “so, are these “dogmen” truly cowards that use dogs to make up for their own inadequacies? or are they liars and still fighting their dogs?”

    THEY ARE BOTH COWARDS AND LIARS!

  8. “. This is topped off with a voice over at the web page that promotes “stopping BSL”

    THESE ARE THE KINDS OF PEOPLE THAT BEST FRIENDS, ASPCA, AND BAD RAP ARE HELPING!!

    All of these “humane” groups activities to oppose BSL are only hurting the dogs, and helping the dogfighters hurt more dogs

    Why don’t they see this? These “humane” groups are helping animal abusers!

    It’s like child welfare charities declaring that kiddie porn is free speech, and should be allowed. That would be helping the child molesters and pornographers hurt more children

    Well, that is EXACTLY what Best Friends, ASPCA, Bad Rap, and the rest are doing- they are opposing BSL and HELPING ANIMAL ABUSERS abuse more animals!!!

    The propaganda that these groups use to oppose BSL even comes from the dogfighters and breeders. These humane groups are being used like pawns for the dogfighting industry

    Bad Rap even works for the breeders opposing things like breeder licensing and spay/neuter laws

    THEY ARE HELPING THE DOGFIGHTERS!!!

    It gets to the point that one has to ask, are they getting money from the breeding lobbies? Were they bought off?

  9. And that is so true- dogfighters are operating in PLAIN SIGHT!!

    They call themselves “show dog breeders,” “pulling dog breeders,” “working dog breeders,” “hunting dog breeders,” “responsible” breeders,

    They form “dog owner advocacy groups”

    They claim they take their dog to “dog shows”

    They claim that they just “love the breed,” or are breeding pit bulls just to sell.

    THEY ARE DOGFIGHTERS, and they use these false fronts to put off authorities, humane groups, community, anyone who comes sniffing around and asks questions

    Lots of people knew that Michael Vick was breeding and fighting pit bulls, but he just gave the same story that he was “just breeding to sell” and he was left alone for a long time

    These dog fighters take advantage of the minimal (or no) regulation on the dog breeding industry.

    To sell online, they don’t even have to get licensed!! NOTHING!!!

    When breeders don’t have to be licensed and inspected, when they can do what they want with no rules, it’s EASY to run a dogfighting operation!!

    And that is why all these breeder lobbies work so hard to oppose any kind of regulation on the breeding industry whatsoever

    The AKC has an entire “legislative” division which JUST lobbies to oppose any regulation (including regulation against puppy mills! The AKC makes money from puppy mills)

    The American Dog Owners Association, UKC, fights to keep breeding unregulated and underground

    That’s why they oppose things like mandatory spay neuter laws- BECAUSE BREEDERS WOULD HAVE TO GET LEGAL AND GET LICENSED!!

    Breeders want to operate in the darkness with no control, oversight, nothing. They have gotten away with so much by keeping breeding unregulated- puppy mills, cheating on taxes, abusing dogs for profit, spreading disease and illness, and DOG FIGHTING!!!!!!!

  10. The dog fighter breeders try to convince the public that dog fighting is just a bunch of ghetto kids on a street corner, breeding informally, and using pit bull “mixes”

    BALONEY!!!

    The heart of the dog fighting INDUSTRY is the “top” breeders, with kennels, organized fights, underground transportation systems to ship the dog around to fights, dog REGISTRIES!!

    Dog fighting IS all these “show” breeders that claim they are “reputable” and “responsible”

    This is a big money industry, and they don’t want anyone looking around and finding out how they work

    Dog fighting is ORGANIZED CRIME

    So the dog fighters try to claim dog fighting is just a bunch of poor ghetto kids in hopes that America will look the other way, stop caring, get their attention OFF these big Southern dog fighting kennels that have been running for generations, and go hassle the kids in the projects

    They want to talk about racism? Well, that’s some pit bull industry racism. Try to get the media to blame the “black guys.” While the heavily white Southern dog fighting industry, and its associates across the country, keeps humming along.

    And the disgusting is, I’ve seen some nice, white, suburban veterinarians or pit advocacy people using the same tactic- pit bulls are just being picked on by some black guys in the ghetto, who decided one day to just latch onto pit bulls, who were nanny and family dogs, and persecute them. BALONEY! There’s no acknowledgement of the very white, organized pit bull breeding for fighting that has been going on for the past couple hundred years.

  11. So do you think little Julie Hubbard, who wrote that newspaper article, is aware that the “dog shows” she’s being told about are are dog fights?

  12. Hate to say it..But this guy probably gets off.

    The HSUS needs to get on the stick and start working with the USDA on these cases. The Animal Fighting ACT of 2007 made interstate trafficking of fighting animals a federal felony, passing the US Senate by 99-0.

    Local prosecutors seem to have little success prosecuting fighting dog suppliers on dogfighting charges.

    The USDA has been AWOL except for the high profile Vick case.

  13. But why are so many websites dedicated to “responsible pit bull ownership” safe harbors for these people? Its interesting how so many people on these forums will rant and rave about Michael Vick…he was ghetto trash, and amateur, not a real “dogman”. The simpletons involved in “pit bull rescue” have convinced themselves that the dogmen were “gentlemen”, and that they treated the dogs “like family”….that they had a true “love for the breed”.

    The people involved in pit bull advocacy are either outright criminals…dog fighters….or they are back yard breeders…or delusional young women with emotional problems who are willing to overlook sadistic animal cruelty as long as the dog fighter claims loyalty to the breed. If any of you posters have ever seen a pit bull dispatch another dog in an unprovoked attack, (I have) you will know that the excerpts from that book are CORRECT.

  14. I would also like to add that this website is the ONLY place online where these types of discussions are able to be held. Pit bull owners, breeders, and advocates have influenced virtually all the popular pet dog forums on-line…most moderators, curiously, are either pit bull breeders, owners, or involved in “rescue”. I have seen dogfighters enter these forums, only to be ignored or even welcomed. One unmoderated dog-lovers forum actually had the Latin Kings gang members come in to advertise their pit bulls for stud.

    If you are a pet owner looking for advice and help in training your dog on-line, you had better swear your loyalty to the pit bull breed before you join virtually any forum…if you DARE express an opinion that pit bulls should be regulated, or are pro BSL, the moderators will ban you, or the pit bull fans will threaten and harass you until you leave the forum.

    I have seen individuals with strong opinions regarding the regulation of pit bulls threatened physically by men claiming to be “breeders” online. There are currently people involved in dogfighting posing as pet dog owners, posting in popular pet dog forums. These are dangerous criminals, and the moderators ignore them, or even welcome and encourage them. Many dog savvy posters have left popular on-line communities, because we do not want to expose any personal or identifying information to these criminals.

    Under the guise of humane advocacy, pit bull owners and rescuers definitely enable the dogfighetrs and breeders to continue making money breeding and fighting these animals.Public discourse on the matter has been controlled by the pit bull fanatics. I thank God this website exists, so that true animal lovers can discuss these issues.

  15. anonymous is dead on about general pet forums and how pit bull people have taken over the internet to spread their message.

    I honestly believe that there are many well-intentioned animal lovers that support pit bulls/oppose BSL and have no clue about any of this stuff. They would not believe you if you told them. And they would never do their own research into it because they don’t want to be proven wrong.

  16. it is amusing to read the gamedoggers bash john goodwin for his alf past while in the same fight bust threads they swear up and down that the dogmen they idolize no longer engage in their cherished blood sport. the old time dogmen who above all else admire the trait of gameness.
    apparently john should be persecuted for past crimes but not the serial killing family of ed & chris.

  17. The Complete Gamedog: A Guide to Breeding and Raising the American Pit Bull Terrier

    THESE ARE THE RAMBLINGS OF MADMEN. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WATCHES THIS STUFF AND IS NOT MOVED TO TEARS OR VOMIT OR RAGE.

  18. The AKC is certainly something else. They have enormous power and influence. Combine the ACK with the following bed partners and you’re looking at the task of moving Mount Fuji: Breeders, the AVMA and the general pet industry lobby (the pet industry does $40 billion in business annually). How does one even approach overcoming such a combined force?

    The question of “moving Mount Fuji” was an actual question asked by Microsoft and Google to potential new employees during the DotCom era. So there is an answer to the issue. But it will mandate much out-of-the-box thinking and a giant stroke of luck. For a variety of reasons, people “woke up to Obama.” How do we get them to wake up to these issues?

  19. Jersey, thank you, I am glad to see I am not alone in understanding this. I could honestly post links that show popular members of several well-known online pet forums…who are also posting in the dogfighting forums, listing fighting pedigrees of their bloodlines (2XW, ROM), running “yards”, and websites advertising their “yards”,all anonymous, because they are criminals and not legitimate dog breeders.

    Dog savy posters often leave these on-line communities, but many naive pet owners don’t understand the language or history of the game dogs, so they don’t realize that the poster they are posting with is a criminal who engages in felony animal abuse. Even when the mods are alerted, nothing happens, because so many mods are breeders/owners of pit bulls. I don’t know how the owners and moderators of these sites sleep at night…they must have no conscience.

    I would love to find a safe, “pit bull free” on-line communiy of dog lovers, but have had no luck so far.

  20. well, well, well, look at page 8

    “‘Gameness or Style’ was another great article, Jack. You never cease to impress me. I honestly can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve learned from you over the past few years. Two words: Fucking brilliant. I’ll be ordering your book in the next couple days or so; I’m looking forward to some good educational reading. Would you mind if I posted your article on the online museum http://www.pitarchive.org? We’re also looking for other significant individuals for our board of advisors. Tom Garner, Dr. Anna Grimshaw, from Emory University in Atlanta, and Terry Williams (AADR)are already members of the board, and I’d be honored to have you as a fourth. I’d be happy to provide you with any and all details. I’ll be eagerly awaiting your response. Thanks, and once again, great article!”

  21. To above….wow. What do you suppose you would find if you googled some more of the names and kennels in the “testimonials” section?

    What cracks me up about the APBT “dog shows” is that convicted dogfighters like Richard Stratton are the judges in their so-called “confirmation” trials. Please.

    But these shows do serve as a handy cover for all these dogfighters to get together and sell dogs/exchange information.

  22. These psycho’s need to be crushed!

    all the well known dogmens need to have all the dogs taken away and destroyed, it’s harsh but nee,ded when you wipe out the major bloodlines of these dogs, you wipe out the breeders who have been creating and continuing this cruelty.

    I am glad to see the authorities go after all the big name kennels first, it may not stop the cruelty entirely and there will always be sadists out in the world, but it will make a huge dent in the dog fighting world.

    ‘Every journey starts with a step’ we are half way there allready.

  23. I just ran across the article. This will be interesting for sure. Not everything is free speech…hopefully selling violence is not.

  24. Old dog men are not men, they are losers that have lost at everything in life. They have no power in this world as real men so they try to believe that fighting dogs, innocent dogs, makes them big men. What a bunch of losers? It is obvious that the mentality is very low, I wonder if they have wives? For the few that do, these women must have very low IQ’s also. Do you take your kids to dog fights so they can prepared for a wonderful life of raising game dogs??? Dogs living on a chain for life, in a scummy barrel, no human touch except to train to fight ot going to a fight? I can not get into my head how much of a scum bag you must be to do this????

  25. He needs to suffer the same fate as his dogs. Leave him naked covered in blood and let the dogs have at him. This makes me sick. And there's so many more still advertising .
