“I sadly have to say this is nothing new, it’s been going on for years; which is why I included the video as proof. Isn’t treacherous dog fighting brutal & cruel enough for these sickos? Are people becoming so desensitised to the value of innocent life, that they have to create sicker and sicker means of “entertainment? What happens to the dog that’s won the fight but beaten up badly in doing so? They are not going to spend money on fixing up these dogs because they don’t mean anything to them in the first place…they will just be thrown out with the trash & the thugs will get another; there are always plenty homeless pit bulls to be had!.”
“Abuse like this will not stop until the laws are changed. A few days in prison or a fine isn’t going to stop these dick heads!! Lets face it, if they are that cold-hearted as to put 2 dogs in a trunk to fight to the death…what value do they put on a human life, other people’s property? what do they give to the community??? Enough said; so make the punishment a real one, that hopefully will deter others & stick by it.”
“Don’t know about you guys, but I am sick of reading the appalling abuse these beautiful dogs go through!The breed nobody wants from a shelter because they are deemed vicious!! But they aren’t born that way, it’s not their fault & they shouldn’t have to pay with their lives for the damage done; when all they have ever known is violence & fighting. Make the humans who taught them all they know pay for it; not the dogs!!”
How does trunking work? According to animal rights activists, this is what happens during a trunking:
- Two dogs are locked into the trunk of a car and then driven around.
- The car’s stereo plays at a loud volume in order to cover the sounds of the fighting.
- After a short time or when the fighting appears to have stopped, the dead dog is tossed out and the survivor goes on to fight again.
“And Here Is It In Action – This is not a new craze as one can tell by the video date! As always viewer discretion advised.“
Hidden in Darkness: ‘Trunking’ is Dog Fighting’s Ugly Secret
Uploaded on 22 Aug 2008
The latest and most-publicized incident of trunking came to the attention of authorities after a woman in Florida’s Miami-Dade County area reported seeing dogs being put into the trunks of cars in order to have them fight to the death.
Animal control authorities visited the reported location and found 10 dogs, many exhibiting wounds that are typically associated with fighting.
The Miami Herald reports that the home where these dogs were discovered was the focus of a pit bull investigation in June 2012. The breed is illegal in the county and someone called to say that pit bulls were running loose in the neighborhood. The person who lived there denied owning the animals but received a citation.
Additional complaints were called in just two weeks ago. Callers reported the pit bulls were still on the loose and that one had killed a neighbor’s dog.
