Dogfighting Ring Busted

Hundreds of dogs are rescued from multiple dogfighting operations.

The concept of dogfighting seems as barbaric and violent as the gladiatorial games once held in the Colosseum. At least The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) thinks so, and decided to do something about it. On July 8, HSUS combined forces with federal, state, and local authorities to rescue hundreds of dogs from multiple dogfighting operations—it was the largest raid of its kind in the US. Federal and state law enforcement agencies spent the day making arrests and saving dogs in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. The dogs are now in Missouri, being cared for and evaluated to conclude which dogs are more suitable for rescue groups or adopters. Either way, the dogs’ new homes will undoubtedly be better than the fighting ring.
