Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation and No Kill Nation Launch Anti-Dog Fighting Campaign
Miami, Florida – July 31, 2011: The Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation (MCABSL) and No Kill Nation (NKN) are taking a stand against the despicable "spectator sport" of dog fighting. It takes place in the cover of night and the light of day; everywhere; in our fields and backyards. It’s a matter of public knowledge that it occurs, yet it continues to occur unabated.
MCABSL and NKN, together in advocacy, announce the launch of an anti-dog fighting campaign, designed to put an end to the injustice that plagues man's best friend. No longer can we ignore the brutality happening all around us. We challenge you, our fellow citizens, to stand with us as we work to end the fighting.
This blood-sport has become a national epidemic. From Michael Vick’s Bad Newz Kennels to fighting rings in our local neighborhoods – this brutal "sport" must be stopped. Innocent dogs are being abused, ripped apart and killed as a matter of course. Dog-fighting is not restricted to pit-bull type dogs; dogs of all breeds (puppies included) are used as bait dogs for training, many of whom have been stolen from their owners. Criminals in our community are profiting from these brutal activities, built on the pain and misery of our fellow creatures.
As an animal-loving nation, we will stand together and put an end to this barbaric practice once and for all. Please join us and support this cause.
"END THE DEED AND SUPPORT THE BREED!"
