Animal Planet probes dogfighting culture

dogfightingexposedAnimal Planet will kick off a new series of investigative specials Monday night with a no-holds-barred look into the underground culture of dogfighting.

“Animal Planet Investigates: Dog Fighting Exposed”  will probe the secretive world of organized dogfighting, with rare footage and commentary from law enforcement officers and former dogfighters.  The special examines cases across the United States, including Ohio, Texas, Georgia, Michigan and New York.

“By bringing viewers the true and uncensored reality behind dog fighting, we intend to raise public awareness about this cruel and inhumane practice,” says Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet.

“The brave men and women working tirelessly to expose and dismantle these fighting rings are using daring tactics and thanks in large part to their efforts we were able to share this powerful story with our viewers in an in-depth and unprecedented way. Some of the images might be tough to take, but it’s vitally important that these stories are told.

The hour-long show is the first in a quarterly series of specials on the network that will investigate animal issues.

It premieres Monday at 10 p.m.

I hope I’m going to be able to watch this all the way through. Even the brief glimpses shown on news programs have become almost more than I can bear.

Retrievers retrieve.Pointers point.Coondogs track coons and Pitbulls fight.I’m sure they will show some real “characters” in the Animal Planets so called “expose” on dog fighting.Understand the breed and its TRUE ambassadors before you make such ignorant comments.A State level judge in N.Carolina called the Humane Society and their propaganda a fraud after dealing with a case in which the Humane Society refused to even TRY to rehabilatate confiscated Pitbulls.167 Pitbulls,grown dogs and puppies were killed because the deciscion made by this so called “Humane” organization.

Why is it that America has been populated by SHEEPLE? You sheep will eat anything that the media feeds you, won’t you?

Television exist only because of revenue generated by commercial ads. Commercial interests only spend their money in spots that give them the most exposure. What could possibly give the maximum exposure and therefore generate the most revenue? Horror-T.V., that’s what. And that’s EXACTLY what these liars and thieves are selling and you poor sheep are buying it!

Tell me, where do you self-righteous sheeple draw your line? Do you use pesticides to keep your manicured Zoysiagrass grass beautified? Well then your killing bugs! God save the bugs!

Think about this for a moment…..have ANY of you self-righteous people ever researched how things REALLY are in the world around you, or do you choose to let that flat-screen propaganda box do all of your thinking for you? If that’s your only source of information, then your no different than Nazi Germany was when Hitler convinced everyone that all of Germany’s problems were due to non-German people living there. Did your television show you how well THAT turned out? Sheeple….geez…..

This is stupid. The reality is that these dogs are well taken care of. What the media (Animal planet, CNN, FOX, etc.) show and what actually happens are completely different. Believe what you want, you tree hugging fags! Just remember who kills more dogs than anyone else…HSUS!
