I wonder if there is any hope what so ever for society, the ignorance, the lack of compassion, the cruelty, isn’t it strange how so many of us claim that we do not support animal cruelty and yet it is everywhere we turn. I am baffled, people are murdered by way of a shooting or a child get’s his hands on a gun and ends up dead, crowds of people picket and bitch and moan that we need to lay waste to our right to bear arms to protect our homes and families because you know that these “things”, guns themselves are what are killing innocent people not the irresponsible criminals that sometimes wield them. There are people getting stabbed each and every day but does anyone say that we need to rid the world of the knives? Even worse is the popular misconception about Pitbull’s and the morons that believe they should be eradicated from the face of the planet!
I watched this Death Row Dogs on Netflix and I wanted to vomit, it showed British officers going around confiscating dogs from homes and taking them to determine if they are Pitbulls! Needless to say, if they are then most all will be “destroyed”, these assinine so called officers of the law drag these TERRIFIED animals from the only homes they have ever known using catch poles none the less, screaming at the owners, screaming at each other and they expect the dogs to be serene! Most of the dogs wag their tails as they revel in the attention from the occasional officer, that is before they kill them. The one “educated” officer said that they don’t pet the dog too much or give too much affection/attention because this breed is highly excitable and apt to bite then! It reminds me of Colorado, when they pretty much went door to door dragging away every Pitbull and then slaughtering every last one they got their murderous hands on, piles and piles of dead bodies of Pitbulls! How dare any civilized, educated people blame animals for the reckless behavior of human beings.
There are certain people that are not so kind to others, like the terrorists overseas that kill anyone they can find, does the world say that all of those people need to be eradicated? Blame the guns for criminal behavior of people, don’t look at how many times a firearm has actually saved lives, hell we wouldn’t have police officers if they couldn’t carry guns, no military either! Get rid of the guns and those same criminals that have been forever trying to ruin it for everyone, they will find other weapons. Back to helpless animals, you hear of far more stories of dogs saving lives then you do a dogs taking them, kill entire breeds of dogs because the lowest scum of the earth uses them to do their bidding, ruining the animal and having the audacity to take some kind of credit when the dog has to fight for it’s life and wins, at heinous costs to the animals! These scumbags that fight animals need the exact same thing done to them, all who take any part in dog/animal fighting should suffer the same fate.
These moronic asses out there that say every dog of a particular breed should be killed, they need serious education (a bit of good old fashioned common sense wouldn’t hurt either), when law enforcement, government, lawmakers, take the blatantly cowardice way out when a tragedy occurs and place the punishment solely on the four legged victims, they are not worth holding any office, any position and set the poorest examples for others. Horrible things do sometimes happen and dog bite cases are no exception, especially when the victim is a child, but like humans there is the occasional dog that is beyond help but for God’s sake it isn’t entire breeds, get a clue!
If you love dogs and get the opportunity then you have to watch The Champions, like the garbage I mentioned above this one is on Netflix as well and gives insight to the dogs that have been forced to fight, remember Michael Vick? These were a few of the dogs that one soul with a beating heart was able to save from the vile Michael Vick “collection”, it shows just how deeply traumatized these poor dogs were for a long time and their road to recovery. Not only does it PROVE that these dogs can be rehabilitated but it gives a look into the dark, evil world of dog fighters and it’s enough to make your blood boil. Especially the dogs that were killed after ending up in Vick’s nasty hands, like the ones he hooked electrodes to and threw into the pool, getting off from the teeth marks into the metal sides where the dogs were suffering so badly before they died that they bit the sides hoping for any escape. The phobias these four legged victims suffered was heartbreaking, being terrified out of their minds by the smallest sounds, from staircases because it reminded them of climbing the steps in the building where Vick forced them to fight!
Dogs, regardless of breed want nothing more than to please their masters, curl up in our laps, be taken for walks and play with toys, to be nothing more than normal dogs. People make dogs vicious and believe me when I tell you that if the dog had a choice, don’t let anyone BS you they would not want to fight, not want their body shredded,teeth broken out, holes through bones, etc. and none of those are as bad as what the scum of the earth dog fighters put the animal through, especially when they lose which usually results in them being murdered in heinous ways. I say we start doing to the pieces of crap that fight these dogs, action for action what they do to the animals, then I guarantee we’d see a decline in the behavior. A plus too would be that tax dollars wouldn’t have to pay for the criminals while they sit behind bars for a few months, if they are punished at all, because the “do unto others” rule would enable them to be tortured to death like they do to the animals!
Tia Torres from Pitbulls and Parolee’s has long been defending, protecting and rehabilitating Pitbulls (but she’s not bias to other breeds either), she was one of the first to step up and try to educate folks about the breed, God love her she has saved too many Pitbulls lives to count and is still going strong. She recognized from the beginning of the debate long ago that Pitbulls were getting an unfair, untrue bad rap and it was costing them their lives, what was more detrimental to the breed was that people jumped on the bandwagon and believed the breed to be vicious, never putting the blame on those that use them as if they were just an inanimate item of property.
However you have to get involved, do something even if it’s just supporting a no kill shelter for breeds that are being eradicated and not allowed within city limits, better yet find out where the elected officials in your area stand on this issue so you’ll know whether or not to campaign for votes for or against the officials next election. This warped thinking needs to be changed and soon and if the majority took a stand then positive change would be inevitable. Please do watch The Champion’s and tell all of your animal loving friends to do the same.
