Quote from a dog fighter: “The hardest thing is to get enough..cats to use as bait…”

Quote from a dog fighter: “The hardest thing is to get enough dogs and cats to use as bait during training…”. You can see the remainder of the words on the FB notice online. It comes from 2017 but it as valid today as it was then.

Quote from a dog fighter

It is chilling. Cat owners have to be switched on to this sort of thing. The first call on a cat guardian is their cat’s safety. I hope and expect that dog fighting is quite unusual and it is illegal in many countries including in the US and UK.

However, it is underground and it can be undetected by law enforcement. The people involved in it are unscrupulous, immoral types who have a total disregard for animal welfare. They are the sort who like to shoot feral cats as well. They are ignorant an uneducated and have been indoctrinated in the ways of animal cruelty within the family and so this criminal behavior is handed down from generation to generation.

  • It's a crying shame for cats and humans that parenting & society has gone so wrong now, there is little chance of turning it around so all can live without this obscene, barbaric industry. It is an industry, Birmingham UK has a very significant dog fighting problem. This is unfortunately very popular amongst groups who are keen on gambling. Money drives this filthy business, all compassion has been abandoned by any bastard involved.

    There are dog fighting rings in my part of the UK, along with cock fighting, hare coursing and hunting deer, foxes and cats with hounds. It is all illegal, all underground, the police are not well enough resourced to tackle it.

  • Dog fighting is disgusting and inhumane. Ads like this give me chills. I shudder thinking of the emotional and physical pain these poor animals go through. Underground or not, law enforcement needs to do much more to put an end to it.😨😭😠
