In a recent article titled “McKamey Animal Services Seeks Information Pertaining to Dog Fight Victim”, McKamey Animal Center is urging people to share any information regarding a recent dog fight victim that was left abandoned with multiple serious injuries. Abuse to animals is something that I cannot tolerate in the slightest.
My heart goes out to the precious little dog that was so brutally injured and left to die in a remote location. Dog fighting is a horrific sport where dogs are encouraged to fight and kill other dogs.
I applaud McKamey Animal Center for doing all they could to help the precious dog and for their efforts to find and convict the person/s responsible for this.
Participating in dog fighting is considered a felony offense in all 50 states (Dogfighting, n.d.). However, President Trump also signed a bill on Nov. 25 called the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act which makes cruelty towards animals a “…federal crime punishable with fines and up to seven years in prison” (Zaveri, 2019).
We, as a community, need to work together to find the individual/s involved with this cruelty act and hold them accountable for what they did to this poor little dog as well as countless other precious dogs.
If you have any information regarding who may be responsible for this, please contact the local authorities or McKamey Animal Center.
