    If you happen up on a dog fight and 6 or 7 more people come by and watch. Where's the crime ? I'm not getting involved with 2 pit bulls fighting. Dogs fight, it's a fact of nature. People like to talk and say things thats not true. If you can't honestly have any proof that someone started this fighting between these animals you have No Case.Watching a dog fight is not criminal.

      If you're talking about two strays that happen upon each other in the street and start fighting you have a point. If you're talking about individuals setting up a purposeful fight between two dogs then there are no words for you (I'm trying to be kind if that's the point you're trying to make). If someone knows of individuals allowing dogs to fight--IT IS A CRIME both legally and morally. I'm sure those follwing this story would welcome you to clarify your position.

    This poor dog will probably end up being put down because of yet another waste of flesh and bone. It's too bad that we cannot neuter these men so that they can no longer breed and teach others their habits.

    If the people are found and arrested..they'll get a slap on the wrist. That psycho kid who killed 11 or 12 mini greyhounds got probation. This kind of thing breaks your heart and the punishment DOES NOT fit the crime! Hopefully karma will take over if not in this world it will in the next.

    This is disgusting. These "men" deserve worse than what the dog received. I hope they get what they deserve..

    They are NOT MEN! No MAN would do something like that.

    Only a loser would do this to dogs! I say eye for an eye and the punishment should be just as harsh as the dogs injuries!I hope everyone of them get caught!
