To Stamp Out Animal Cruelty, We Must First Witness Its Many Horrors

 

 

A compelling new series of quarterly specials, ‘Animal Planet Investigates’ is bringing animal protection issues and investigative journalism together in several new shows spotlighting the complex, behind-the-scenes work, of advocating for animals.
 
In the first show, ‘Animal Planet Investigates: Dog Fighting Exposed’ which premieres tomorrow, January 25th, at 10 PM (ET/PT), Humane Society anti-dog fighting operations provide the framework for an in-depth exploration of America’s massive dog fighting problem, including a look at the urban street culture that fosters this "sport," the law enforcement challenges it brings, and the legislative push to increase penalties.
 
Featuring dog fighting experts John Goodwin, Chris Schindler, and other team members, this prime-time special takes viewers on law enforcement busts, exploring what is being done to educate and rehabilitate offenders, and also touches on their work with the Michael Vick case.
 
Commenting on this new addition to the network's programming, Animal Planet President and General Manager Marjorie Kaplan said: "We want to provide a springboard to raise issues that audiences are passionate about within the animal world. The 'Animal Planet Investigates' strand of programming gives us the opportunity to bring forth hard-hitting topics and partner with great organizations like The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to highlight their efforts."
 
While future specials will examine a variety of animal protection issues, the next "Animal Planet Investigates," scheduled to air this Spring, will spotlight another massive animal cruelty problem in America today – the horrendous world of Puppy Mills.
 
Kudos to Animal Planet for recognizing that there is an audience for these types of exposés, and that we all need to become educated in them, before we can stop them.
 
I would encourage every animal lover in America to watch them.
 
And having rescued many so called ‘Pit Bulls,’ I know that no breed or type of dog is inherently vicious; vicious human beings make them so.
 
In order to stamp out the horrendous animal cruelty taking place in our nation, we must first witness its many horrors.

I arrested some men in N.C. for this same kind of crime, I have seen it up front. This is not just a crime, it is total cruelty that you don't want to witness.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 1/24/2010
The sad part is there is big money to be made in this blood sport no less vulgar than murder that so many authorities turn a blind eye. It is time for the decent to take a stand.

You almost have me there by an inch, throwing everything I nurtured over the years away, and seriously would go back to " an eye for an eye" approach. Put those that perpetrate such crimes, in a fight with a pitbull oponent, if he survives he paid his fine. Darn it,
Blessings! Jasmin Horst

timely, needed and so often unheeded

And then, we have a millionaire sportsman Martin Mitchell telling us that the dogs kind of started fighting by their own volition...
