Comments Off on Have You Heard About the Disturbing New Animal Abuse Trend Known as ‘Trunking? Petition To Stop This Inc.

“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!!”

June 4th 2013 – What is “trunking?” It involves dogs (typically pit bulls), the trunks of cars, and possibly some of the most inhumane treatment of animals seen in a long time.

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

NEW YORK — One of the most barbaric forms of animal cruelty has an underbelly which for years has remained literally hidden in darkness: “Trunking” is dog fighting‘s ugly secret.

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.

$3000 Reward Offered For Apparent Dogfighting Victim

Comments Off on $3000 Reward Offered For Apparent Dogfighting Victim

Meet Gideon. His is the face of dogfighting and his eyes speak volumes about his history; pain, agony and worst of all, hopelessness.

The Newark NJ Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter is offering a $3000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the monsters who dumped this poor dog on the side of the road. The address where he was found is 384 South 6th Street in Newark.

Illegal dogfighting is running rampant through our country and innocent victims like Gideon are paying the ultimate price for this “sport”. Whether it’s bait dogs used to train the fighters or the actual fighters themselves, all of them are hurt in ways no animal should ever have to endure. It’s the complete and total betrayal of the trust animals should be able to have for their guardians. What these animals endure is unspeakable fear, pain and almost always, a brutal death.

Gideon the innocent victim

Gideon was found after being dumped on the side of the road like a bag of trash with massive injuries. He has been transferred to the care of a specialist because of his horrendous wounds, which include a shattered leg that has become infected due to lack of needed medical care. His condition is considered to be grave, and it’s touch and go right now if he’ll even survive.

Gideon’s situation shouts out at the backwards manner in which our country and other countries are handling the crime of dogfighting. These sick monsters exploit a bully breed’s inherent dedication, devotion and overwhelming desire to please their guardians and then bastardize them into fighting machines for profit and ego.

In the media, instead of focusing attention on the human monsters, it seems everywhere the focus is on the breed itself, trying to eliminate all bully breeds from the face of earth. Single stories of any dog remotely resembling a bully breed attacking a human are emblazoned in the media, spewing out the horrors of the overall breed itself and adding fuel to the insanity. The stories about attacks by any other breed of dog are rarely ever mentioned. After all, according to the media, those are all “good dogs”.

Take a long hard look into Gideon’s face. This innocent victim has suffered inconceivable pain and for what? So some gang banger can boast about his big bad fighting dog? So some greedy subhuman can gather his or her friends together for a day of standing around the pit, watching the blood spew, hearing the yelps and screams from the dogs and watching the money fly in bets? So one human can feel bigger and better than another?

At what price does all of this come? It comes in the form of dogs like Gideon who, once used up and unable to fight any more are either brutally killed or dumped like yesterday’s garbage. The trust he put into his guardians was violated in the most despicable ways. He suffered and continues to suffer immense pain and his very life hangs in the balance, while the monsters drove off into the night to do it all again another day.

If you have any information that can lead police to the capture, arrest and conviction of these monsters, please contact the Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter at 973-824-7080. Please network Gideon’s story to help bring these sick people to justice. He deserves that from the humans who truly do care.

If you would like to donate towards Gideon’s care, please visit the AHS website at the link provided below. Gideon is facing a long and painful journey and needs all the help he can get.

Did Heineken sponsor brutal dog fighting in Asia? Brewing giant investigates as damning photo appears on the internet

Comments Off on Did Heineken sponsor brutal dog fighting in Asia? Brewing giant investigates as damning photo appears on the internet

“I’ve just had the following picture shared with me on Face Book, obviously I was shocked, so did a little digging around & found the following story below…”

 

PUBLISHED: 13:04, 18 April 2012 | UPDATED: 20:35, 21 April 2012

Beer giant Heineken launched an urgent investigation after an internet photo of a brutal dog fight showed the ring was surrounded by their branded banners.

Thousands have called for a boycott of their drinks because of the image from an unknown Asian country, believed to be in Mongolia.

Yesterday Heineken said it was ‘as shocked and disappointed’ as anyone who had seen their name linked to the blood sport.

The picture shows people filming a dogfight in a ring with the Heineken logo hanging from pillars above the crowd.

Battle: Angry drinkers have launched campaigns to boycott Heineken because of their alleged link to the cruel sport (file picture)

Animal rights groups circulated the image online, sparking an angry response from their supporters.

In an official statement on their own Facebook site Heineken said: ‘We are aware of images of dog fighting circulating online including our branding. We do not support such cruelty and are urgently investigating.

However many people called on the firm to speak out publicly against dogfighting, accusing them of backtracking after being ‘caught out’.

One Facebook user said: ‘I am so not having anything to do with your product or events you sponsor – anywhere – until you sort this out. Disgraceful!’

‘Shame on you Heineken–you are what is wrong with this world! How could you sponsor such a heinous crime!’ another said.

This afternoon the Dutch brewer claimed they had tracked down the club in Mongolia thanks to online comments and said that the venue had held an official Heineken event there the night before.

A spokesman told MailOnline they had no knowledge of the dog fighting and have now removed all remaining promotional materials from the venue and ended their relationship.

‘The venue owner has verbally confirmed that Heineken banners are visible in the pictures because the previous evening the club had been decorated for a promotional event and he had failed to remove the banners once it was over.  This event was in no way related to the dog fight,’ he said.

‘We fully understand the level of negative feeling amongst consumers based on what they have seen.

‘We encourage our consumers to continue to use social media channels to alert us to any situation where they feel our brands are being misrepresented, so that we can take the appropriate actions.’

Heineken has run into trouble in the past after it was revealed their Spanish Central Cervejas brand was advertised at bullrings in Spain.

A comment from the page below:-

“Looks that way hey? And apparently Heineken say they had an event prior to this one, and the people forgot to take their banners off for this event…. whatEVA!!! What ever they may say, even that they would hold an event in the same place that allows dog fights should not even be in the equation!!!”

GOP Rep. Steve King Defends Dog Fighting
By Scott Keyes on Jul 31, 2012 at 2:50 pm

If you believe that the United States should legalize dogfighting because we allow humans to fight, fear not. You’ve got an ally in the United States Congress.

During a tele-townhall late last week, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) fielded a question about his opposition to animal rights and recently introduced legislation that would undermine local standards preventing animal torture.

“It’s wrong to rate animals above human beings,” he told the questioner. To make his point, King argued that “there’s something wrong” for society to make it a “federal crime to watch animals fight” but “it’s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting.”

KING: When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says that it’s a federal crime to watch animals fight or to induce someone else to watch an animal fight but it’s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting, there’s something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that.
King did not say whether it was also hypocritical that society allows people to get married yet not animals.

Of course, there is a very good reason we ban dogfighting and other similar forms of cruelty: animals don’t have a choice in the matter. Manny Pacquiao chooses to step into the ring. Michael Vick‘s dogs did not. Similarly, when a human boxer loses a fight, he is not ritually executed after the fight. The same is not always true in dogfighting.

Unfortunately, King is a longtime advocate for legalizing dogfighting, cockfighting, and other forms of animal torture. Most recently, he fought legislation that would make it illegal to bring a child to an animal fight. He has also set aside his love for states’ rights in order to forbid localities from enacting anti-animal torture standards.

Pregnant woman and boyfriend arrested for dog fighting, cruelty to animals

Comments Off on Pregnant woman and boyfriend arrested for dog fighting, cruelty to animals

DONALDSONVILLE, LA (WAFB)Ascension Parish Sheriff’s detectives have arrested a woman and a man accused of dog fighting and animal cruelty.

Brittany Ward, 24, was arrested on Monday night at her residence in the 700 block of Sixth St. in Donaldsonville. Deputies said they saw several dogs in the backyard with chains around their necks and no access to food or water.

Joseph Duncan, 28, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon.

Ward’s mother, Valerie Bennett, who lives across the street, admitted her daughter knew what was allegedly going on at the house, but she does not think Ward should be held responsible.

“She does know he dog fight. But it’s not her fault that she in the house and she doesn’t know what goes on on the outside of the house,” Bennett said.

One of the dogs rescued from the house

Police said two of the dogs had scabs that appear to be from fighting. Another dog was found dead with bite marks and duct tape around its muzzle. Detectives said it is typical for a dog to be used as bait in a fighting ring.

Ward and Duncan are charged each with five counts of aggravated cruelty to an animal, five counts of confined animals, lack of necessary food and water, and dog fighting.

The four pit bulls and another small dog found alive in the yard are being held in the Ascension Parish Animal Shelter.

Ward’s bond was set Tuesday afternoon at $215,000. Bond has not yet been set for Duncan. Duncan was convicted of dog fighting in 2003.

Another chance for 6 survivors of Jacksonville dog fighting

Comments Off on Another chance for 6 survivors of Jacksonville dog fighting

They’re headed for Pittsburgh animal shelters; 11 other dogs from fighting ring were euthanized.

Sam and five of his buddies are leaving Jacksonville for a better life, still sporting some of the scars of misery that led to the deaths of 11 of their friends.

Willie B. Coleman is charged with 17 counts of possessing dogs used for animal fighting

The American pit bull terriers all were victims of a dog fighting ring busted in February by Jacksonville police and the Humane Society of the United States.

The owner, Willie B. Coleman, 69, of 9215 Norfolk Blvd., was charged with 17 counts of possessing dogs used for animal fighting. He will be in court today trying to get his case dismissed, records show.

Many of the dogs had scars and other injuries, including mutilated faces, when they were recovered. Eleven of the dogs were euthanized due to medical issues and behavior problems; the others were nursed back to health at Jacksonville’s Animal Care and Protective Services center.

The survivors are heading for Pittsburgh, where they will be taken to shelters for adoption, said Daisy Balawejder, dog fighting rescue coalition coordinator for the Humane Society of the United States.

The dogs range from puppies to older adults. Balawejder said there’s a good reason for not adopting them out locally.

“We would hate for associates of family members of the person involved to get their hands on these dogs,” Balawejder said Monday. “They do try.”

That’s because there’s big money in dog fighting and breeding of dogs like Sam, who has been deemed a dog-fighting champion, Balawejder said.

When rescued, much of Sam’s upper muzzle was missing and his teeth were exposed. Despite the mean look, rescuers found the tan, older adult to be welcoming. He jumped in Balawejder’s lap and cuddled with her at Animal Control Monday morning.

“It’s very powerful to see a dog who has been through so much at the hands of human beings, yet continues to trust and love us,” Balawejder said. “We have a lot to learn from him about humanity.”

Balawejder said dogfighting rings are common in most communities including Jacksonville, where a similar bust occurred last year.

“Dog fighting is happening everywhere and Jacksonville is no exception,” she said. “It makes my day when we get a dog to safety, out of the hands of these people.”

Potential adoptive families will be told about the history of each dog but will also be assured they would be good friends to anyone wishing to treat them well, Balawejder said.

“We are very committed to giving the survivors of dog fighting the best possible chance at life as a companion pet,” she said. “It’s so sad we can’t save them all.”

Danilow: The face of animal cruelty in Fort Worth

Comments Off on Danilow: The face of animal cruelty in Fort Worth

As the day begins, we sort through hundreds of photos and links covering the intake for the day before. We think the lists are growing longer each time. We see dogs picked up as strays, dogs surrendered by owners for few reasons, dogs left behind in vacant houses or yards, dogs tossed off bridges, found almost dead on the road, some of them starving, some of them sick, some of them barely able to walk; some just lost and wandering, wondering why they have been abandoned and why the world is so cruel.

This is the life of rescuers.

But little can prepare one for the horror of seeing a dog clinging to life as the result of dog fighting.

Nathan was one of these who brought me to my knees. Last week a fellow rescuer found Nathan, a lonely, sad pit bull at Fort Worth Animal Care and Control. His face was rotting off. He had been used as a “bait dog” and had endured so much trauma and injury without any veterinary care that his flesh was falling off his face and gangrene had set in everywhere.

His nose was torn away and there was a hole into his skull where his nose had been; his mouth was not discernable. His teeth had been sharpened to make him inflict harm on his tormentors and make them fight harder. He could barely stand, and he was skin and bones. The pads of his feet were hard and calloused where he was most likely chained on cement for a very long time.

He probably never knew warmth. We know he never knew kindness. His eyes bore a sadness I will never be able to wipe from my memory.

Nathan was whisked away to the vet’s office where reconstructive surgery would begin. A day later, Nathan’s poor, emaciated, abused, tortured body gave up. His spirit left his broken life and he crossed the bridge to wherever dogs have a better chance at love.

There is an ugly undertow swirling in Fort Worth. It is the face of dog fighting often accompanied by drugs, gambling, prostitution and the darkest of all human activities. It goes on in garages and fields and old warehouses, anywhere people can gather without being subjected to the law, where spectators jeer and cheer and drink in the violence of sheer blood and horror.

Small children are often seen in these crowds.

Rescuers know the neighborhoods and the signs: dogs on chains, dogs being beaten, dogs being bred indiscriminately in back yards and sold to fight. The number of stolen dogs in Fort Worth is rising, many being used and tortured to create bloodlust in dogs to be used to fight.

The sweet, gentle dogs who refuse to fight are used as bait while their faces and necks are torn open and ripped apart. Sometimes their mouths are taped shut so they can’t fight back. Once they give up they are tossed aside in gutters, left on back roads to die alone or wrapped in garbage bags and thrown in the city dump.

Many of these tortured souls die a long and painful death, suffering for hours or days waiting for their final breath to come and release them from their hell.

We have a problem and its face is cruelty. If you know about abuse and do not speak up, you become an accessory to the crime. Wake up, Fort Worth. We have a problem.

“This reduced me to tears, these people aren’t human, having children watch…that’s the next generation of abusers!!  Do you think their going to care about animals having witnessed so many horrific fights?  If they live in a neighbour hood full of gangs, street crime & fights,  how does one go about teaching them it’s wrong?”

 The parents obviously don’t care, if they allow their children to witness such gruesome acts towards animals… So perhaps the education system should step up?.  Scrap the biology class’s that teach kids how to cut up frogs & mice,  stop those schools that let the kids dissect cats;  what purpose does that serve apart from giving kids idea’s on how to abuse the family pet!!

“The curriculum should teach the kids about living breathing animals, including animal welfare, the farming & agricultural industry, mammals & how some animals are on the brink of extinction due to human interference & global warming  etc.   Hopefully, some will then go on be the next generation of animal advocates instead of animal abusers!!”

Boy, 14, ‘was leader of brutal dog fighting ring that left three animals dead’

Comments Off on Boy, 14, ‘was leader of brutal dog fighting ring that left three animals dead’

A 14-year-old boy is the alleged leader of a vicious dog fighting ring which left three canines so badly tortured that they had to be euthanized.

Tortured: A 14-year-old boy is the alleged leader of a dog fighting ring where a Labrador, used as a 'bait dog', suffered such bad injuries it could not stand

Acting on a tip off, authorities seized nine dogs and two puppies from two houses in Flint, Michigan, last week and took the teenager into police custody. The boy’s mother was arrested on unrelated charges.At least three of the animals were found with multiple injuries typical of dog fighting, although some hurt was sustained from human torture.

Two of the dogs had such severe injuries, including fractured bones and open lacerations, that they could not stand up.

But despite a ‘gory report’ by the Genesee county veterinarian detailing the wounds of some of the dogs four of the animals will be returned to their owners after authorities say they don’t have enough evidence to hold them.

Brutal: Authorities rescued nine dogs and two puppies from two homes in Michigan - at least three of the dogs were found with both fresh and old wounds

Many of the injuries the dogs received are typically associated with dog fighting, according to Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell.

‘Dog fight injuries typically occur on the front legs and face from sparring,’ Pickell told M Live.

Authorities initially found a ‘bait dog’, a chocolate brown Labrador retriever, in the home’s driveway whose injuries were described as ‘just brutal’The Labrador and two pit bull dogs had to be put down.

The ‘bait dog’, typically used to test other dogs fighting instinct, had bite wounds all over its body, with deep, severe wounds on its front legs.

It had a deep laceration along its shoulder, which was bleeding, and a fractured bone.

The base of the Labrador’s tail had multiple fractures likely to have been inflicted by the other dogs biting and pulling it, according to Pickell.

Another injury, inflicted by a human, revealed that the animal was likely the victim of blunt force trauma when a foreign object was inserted into its rectum.

A tan and white pit bull had fresh bite wounds on its ears as well as deep bite marks into its mouth, Pickell said.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The animal also had three fractured ribs –  evidence that it had been tortured and kicked by humans.

The second pit bull had a fractured bone left untreated that had occurred more than three days ago.

While four of the dogs look likely to be returned to their owners the others, including two puppies, will be put up for adoption after they get a clean bill of health.

The exposure of the dog fighting ring has led State Representative Harvey Santana, D-Detroit, to proposing two bills that would crack down on animal abuse and neglect, according to NBC 25.

The bills suggest harsher fines and the creation of an animal abuse registry where offenders would register for five years and pay an annual fine of $50 dollars.

‘What happens when someone is convicted of animal abuse? Nothing. He doesn’t get put on a registry and he can go back out and adopt another pet,’ Rep. Harvey told NBC25.

“Finally someone is seeing sense regards an Animal Abuse Registry”

An investigation continues and police say arrest warrants should be issued imminently.
