Warning: This story may disturb some readers.

Pit Bull PuppyEarlier this month, sheriff deputies entered an Illinois residence that allegedly was being used as a major dog-fighting operation. They found 16 pit bulls in cages without food or water, and the dogs were covered with scars and cuts. They also found a fighting ring and spectator seats set up and steroids and antibiotics to make the dogs more aggressive and to help with their wounds.

The man who rents the house is being wanted on charges of aggravated cruelty to animals, dog fighting, and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon. The Lake County Health Department is holding the 16 pit bulls. A sheriff stated that: “it was a large-scale, professional dog-fighting operation, one of the largest I’ve ever heard of or seen.”

    Now this guy needs to get caught and do some heavy duty jail time. Notice how there is way more proof of dog fighting then in the case of Michael Vicks.

    “They found 16 pit bulls in cages without food or water, and the dogs were covered with scars and cuts. They also found a fighting ring and spectator seats set up and steroids and antibiotics to make the dogs more aggressive and to help with their wounds.”

    Unbelieveable how cruel some so called humans can be. Dog fighting is NOT a sport nor is it entertainment.

    The American Pit Bull Breed has been receiving a bad rap since the 1980’s, why? Because of people like this.
