So I read in the news today that police are warning dog owners in my state about a possible dog fighting ring. They have had 16 dogs reported stolen in the past 2 weeks. Mostly pitbull mixs, but also some labs and other large mixed breeds. Police think they are using these stolen family pets to teach their fighting dogs how to fight and kill. I cannot believe this!! Has anyone else heard of similar happenings in their area? I am shocked that people will steal nice family pets for this – and I feel so badly for the poor families who have had their pets stolen!
Oh man, if I caught someone trying to steal my dog for this purpose, I would be so livid – this is just SOO wrong!

@Sea_Ashley: that’s awful! I’ve heard of this happening in rural areas (my FH is from WestVa, he’s heard stories of it in his neighborhood).

This is also why people need to be wary about selling their dogs on craigslist.
A couple months ago, there was a guy going around in my area that was contacting all of the free to good home ads and letting his dogs attack and eat the dogs.
