well im surprised no one has brought this up. obviously these happen everywhere but at least its some what in the public now because of football star. i dont know much about dog fighting but after hearing about it on the news, its some crazy stuff they do to the dogs. they obviously starve some of them to make them more viscious for the other dog, but i heard from some attorney on news that they feed them gun powder, wipe coke on their mouth and the rape stand ( what the hell is that ). also kill the dogs by hanging or electricution if they dont fight back or lose, brutal stuff.
At the start, authorities seized 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment commonly used in dogfighting. About half the dogs were tethered to car axles with heavy chains that allowed the dogs to get close to each other, but not to have contact - an arrangement typical for fighting dogs, according to the search warrant affidavit.
Before fights, participating dogs of the same sex would be weighed and bathed, according to the filings. Opposing dogs would be washed to remove any poison or narcotic placed on the dog's coat that could affect the other dog's performance.
Sometimes, dogs weren't fed to "make it more hungry for the other dog."
Fights would end when one dog died or with the surrender of the losing dog, which was sometimes put to death by drowning, strangulation, hanging, gun shot, electrocution or some other method, according to the documents.
