“VIDEO TO FOLLOW…OK somebody know’s who this dog belonged to, so do yourself a favour & tell the authorities; anonymously if you must, just please do it! The people that make dogs fight to the death are nothing but cowardly cold hearted thug’s who take pleasure in seeing such heinous cruelty. They are probably into domestic violence too, as they like to dominate & be in control. But these MF’s are not fit to breathe the same air as animals never mind humans; locking them up is too good for them. I say use these MF’s for experimenting on instead of sentient beings who have done no harm to anyone. Please, if you have a conscience, do the right thing; before someone, perhaps a child gets hurt!

The male pit bull puppy found in Yonkers was unable to recover from excessive wounds and blood loss, and had to be euthanized.

Pitlbull puppy had to be euthanized due to severe trauma & injuries

Local veterinarians were unable to save a 9-month-old pit bull puppy that suffered massive wounds and blood loss after likely being used as a ‘bait dog’ to train other dogs to fight. 

The SPCA of Westchester’s Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) Division was contacted by the Yonkers Animal Shelter who got a call about a severely injured dog found on a walkway between Somerville Road and Edwards Place in Yonkers. The puppy was taken a local animal hospital. 

‘At the time, his breathing was extremely laboured ‘ said Ernest Lungaro, director of the SPCA’s HLE Division. ‘The veterinarian who examined him reported that the pit bull had severe multiple bite wounds and abrasions about his face, muzzle and head. He was extremely emaciated and neglected and was mostly likely used as a bait dog in a fighting ring. 

The veterinarian also noted the animal had old scars from previous attacks.’

The puppy was put to sleep Thursday, since veterinarians determined he was unable to recover from such severe injuries.

Puppies, weak or older dogs and females who can’t breed are often used as ‘bait dogs’ and are usually tied up and/or have their teeth removed so they are rendered defenceless-according to the Briarcliff based SPCA of Westchester, a no-kill non-profit animal shelter, hospital and animal cruelty law enforcement organization.

‘Although dog fighting is a crime in New York State, we are constantly on the lookout for clandestine groups who fight the animals in Westchester County,’ said Lungaro.

The SPCA’s HLE Division is asking that anyone with information on this puppy or information on dog fighting in their area to make a confidential call to the number below.
