Dog fighting and animal cruelty

An article appeared today on Craven Desires today which makes a point with heart breaking eloquence, a point which I have pondered for some time, and which must certainly haunt every human being who has the slightest sympathy for animals.

The dog fighters are condemned for having created pit bulls, and for continuing to breed them for their original purpose, which was to engage an animal in a sustained attack and to continue the attack regardless of pain and injury suffered, regardless of what the victim does. When 2 fighting dogs who want nothing more than to tear each other apart are allowed to fight it's a sad commentary on the humans who take pleasure in this, but what's infinitely more cruel is the daily slaughter of the innocents that we're seeing, when these fighting dogs attack, torture, main and kill innocent family pets who have no desire to fight. 

I've long been puzzled by those who are ostensibly motivated by compassion, who are outraged at the idea that pit bulls are pitted against each other, who think of the pit bulls involved as pitiful victims, but when pit bulls, doing what they are wired for, jump out of moving cars or second story windows to savage sweet, docile dogs, miniature ponies, or alpacas in their own yards, they express no outrage, have no compassion for the victims, and make no call to end the suffering? 

One can only conclude that their supposed compassion is some sort of twisted, evil game. 

See the article at Craven Desires for the full story


  1. great minds think alike. i almost titled this blog "slaughter of the innocent".

    thanks for sharing this.

  2. My compassion for bulldogs, created by our species for the entertainment of watching them tear each other apart doesn't diminish my compassion or pity for their other victims. Dog fighting has out lived it's time and so have fighting breeds. To me the tragedy is in both their creation and their continued existence. If our species had done the right thing by their species the horrors would have ended decades ago. As it is we must continue the fight on every front to insure the attacks are ended by ending the existence of fighting breeds.


  3. i dont believe pitbull people have compassion for victims , just pitbulls . just like the mother of a murderer will lie and defend her evil spawn , pitters only care for themselves are their evil creation . its people like this that created pitbulls in the first place , i think.

  4. I read the Ted Bundy received 300 marriage proposals a day while on death row. It appears these same disaffected women have found Pit Bulls.
