It is estimated that no less than 40,000 dogfighters in the United States are operating on local, national and international levels. The most common age for an animal abuser is between 31 and 40. Dogs are primed and are tested on there “gameness.” They normally go up against a more skilled and tested dog. If they pass, they are considered fight ready. If a dog has become a skilled fighter, it is often sold for thousands of dollars.

Recently a video has surfaced of a United States Marine who found an abandoned dog. The marine held the dog by the neck, and then threw it off a nearby cliff. As the dog was sailing threw the sky, it started crying, but the marine and others around just laughed. This is a disgusting and terrifying video and should be dealt with very sternly.
