Former Bait Dog Gets Second Chance At Life

Animal cruelty in the worst form is dog fighting, a vicious activity. It has been a felony in the United States since 2008. It is illegal to be in possession of dogs that are used for fighting.

In every state but Hawaii and Montana, it is illegal to even be a spectator at such a horrible activity.  Bait dogs are chained or confined while other dogs attack, bite the animal. The goal for the attacking dog is to incapacitate or kill the bait dog.

If a large dog is used as the bait dog, the dog’s mouth is often taped so it can’t fight back! Unfortunately, dog fighting and baiting still happen in the U.S and across the globe.
