Dog Fighters Behind Bars!

Good news from the ASPCA: Their field investigations unit rescued 26 abused and neglected Pit Bulls from an underground dog fighting operation, and less than a year later, the two men responsible were convicted of animal cruelty and sentenced to prison. Tim Rickey, the ASPCA' s Senior Director of Field Investigations and Response, and leader of last February's rescue operation, said it so well: "It's encouraging to start off the year with two successful animal cruelty convictions and send a clear message that animal abuse will not be tolerated." We couldn't agree more.
