Fight Club

This disgusts me...
Milwaukee police busted a dogfighting operation on the city's north side, rescuing six sick and injured pit bulls and arresting one man, police said Monday.
When police entered a house Friday in the 4900 block of N. 27th St., they found six pit bulls, weight equipment, drugs - most likely antibiotics - and a treadmill used to train the dogs, police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said.

Police also found a string pull, a thick piece of leather shaped like a hook with a chain, hanging from the ceiling.

Dogs are hung from the hook by their jaws to strengthen the jaws for clamping on to other animals during a fight, said Caroline Knitter, a sergeant with Police Department's sensitive crimes unit who specializes in animal abuse. The dogs' back legs also are strengthened, she said.

"That's what they use to pitch their force during the fight," she explained. "Because often in a fight, the front legs will be broken, so they need to use their back legs to be able to get up to continue to fight."

Police photos show at least one dog, a brown pit bull, was missing an eye and was badly scarred with fresh sores on its snout. Scarring is a typical sign of dogfighting, as are heavy chains, thick locks and weights, Knitter said.

What the HELL is wrong with people? Hung by their JAWS??? My GOD - these are living breathing animals - who could do this?? How can any human being treat a living creature this way??

I have an idea. How about if we hang these pieces of pond scum (my apologies to pond scum) by THEIR jaws and let those poor dogs have at it. I think that's a reasonable reaction, no?

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.
