Feds rescue over 400 fighting dogs in one day.

It’s the biggest dogfighting raid in the history of law enforcement. It took place over seven states and netted 26 people that will hopefully one day rot in hell for what they have done. From the San Francisco Examiner:

State and federal agents staged raids in several states, charging individuals in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas following a more-than-year-long investigation originally tipped off by the Humane Society of Missouri.

In Missouri, prosecutors said members of a multistate ring routinely denied the dogs medical treatment and “destroyed” injured dogs who were no longer able to fight by shooting them “in the head, throwing them into the river or burning them in a barrel.”

Although the arrests stem from the same investigation, the rings were not “one concentrated, organized conspiracy.” United States attorneys in four districts will try the cases separately.

Kathy Warnick, president of the Humane Society of Missouri called the raid the “largest coordinated rescue in U.S. history.” “This heinous, heinous bloodsport is not going to be tolerated,” she told the New York Daily News.

The Humane Society of Missouri is sheltering more than 300 dogs – believed to be mostly pit bull terriers – seized in Missouri and Illinois raids. The dogs will be housed, cared for and evaluated at an undisclosed emergency shelter in St. Louis.

I just can not wrap my mind around humans that do this. I just can not. They would kill the losing dogs by shooting them and burning the bodies.

Lest there be any doubt…

Espn is reporting that Michael Vick’s father has issued a statement that Vick’s ‘thing’ is and has been dogfighting. He asked people to stop sugar-coating this issue. Vick used to hold dogfights in his family’s home in Newport News until his dad told him to knock it off.

Everyone and their mother is reporting Vick is suspended indefinitely from playing for the NFL. Its a just and correct move imho. This means he can apply for reinstatement after his jailtime is served.

If this doesn’t end the race debate on this issue, I don’t know what will. Michael Vick is one sick sumbitch, regardless of his color. From Daddy’s mouth:

“I wish people would stop sugarcoating it,” Boddie told The Journal-Constitution. “This is Mike’s thing. And he knows it … likes it, and he has the capital to have a setup like that.”
