Dog deaths lawsuit settled | Home | The Advocate — Baton Rouge, LA

The ASPCA and it's dog fighting team are BS.

I'd agree with you Jane about the slaughterhouse workers if they killed humanely. Unfortunately I've seen how they kill the animals and it is rarely mercifully or humanely unless it is small scale. And to make yourself a part of that is no different than beating your dog for no reason.

And yes about the crush videos, people pay pretty good to watch them die like that - same as pedophiles getting kiddie porn. It's horrific.

As far as this story being bad for the breed, well, the breeders of these dogs are the ones to be blamed, not the public or anyone who reports on it.
No, because the breeders aren't the ones pumping out misinformation, it's the media.

Those breeders were breeding the dogs to fight...plain and simple. Why should the medie be blamed for that? There are so many pb's on CL, they are overbred.
If the breeders would take more responsibility in their breeding practices and placement I don't think the breed would have such a reputation.
This thread isn't about THE breed! It's about the sentencing guidelines that are handed out and why judges would burden the shelter/rescues that are already trying to keep their sanity.

Oh I know, but if we can have a slightly veering topic discussion that pertains to the breed involved and stay civil, I didn't think it would hurt.

Real American Pit Bull Terrier breeders are not common. Nor are they lax about who their dogs go to. It isn't their dogs you see on craigslist - though believe me I know more than most about the overpopulation of 'Pit Bull' type dogs. I'm worrying now over two that I personally know who are going to need homes before February.

Whether a breeder is breeding dogs based on their original purpose, or for conformation and temperament and health - which is where Amstaffs came from - it isn't their fault if the media makes random stuff up that makes a good owner look bad. When they media lists off tools and toys responsible and good owners use - or that if a Pit Bull has scars and tell Joe Public to keep an eye out for these things as they indicate a dog fighter, it hurts the good owners. I don't even own a Pit Bull right now, and I have a springpole, breaksticks, flirtpole and thick collars. I also have extensive knowledge on APBT history - enough to make you (Jane) think I like fighting dogs apparently. So how do you think the average person who hears this crap from the media would view an owner walking a Pit Bull on a thick collar while carrying a break stick? 90% of the time they assume "Dog fighter!" because of the media lying and making things up to sound like they know what they're saying. And if an ACO thinks you fight dogs, it's enough to take your dogs from you until you can prove otherwise. So YES, misinformation on dog fighting does hurt the good owners.
