$5000.00 Reward for Dog Fighting Information

 
                                               FIGHTING DOGFIGHTING
 
Who hasn't seen the gut-wrenching videos of dogfighting and  been totally disgusted and deeply angered - while feeling totally helpless.   We think: “how anyone could do such things and how can such people be discovered, stopped and prosecuted under the state’s cruelty to animal laws?”  For many years, its been very difficult.
 
Innocent dogs taught to kill; innocent stolen dogs or puppies put into a ring with dogs as bait.  Vicious, inhuman....and criminal behavior.  
 
NC Statute 362.2 outlines the prohibitions against Dogfighting and Baiting wherein a person who engages in the below is guilty of a Class H Felony in NC:
            a.  “a person who owns, possesses or trains a dog with the intent to use the dog in dogfighting; or,
            b.  a person who participates as a spectator at an exhibition featuring baiting or dogfighting of a dog for the fighting of a dog with another or with another animal”
 
But now, finding such criminals and reducing, and possibly eliminating such cruelty, has become much easier by the Humane Society of the United States’ advertised Reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of dogfighters and participants. 
 
 $5,000.00 is being offered for  information regarding dog fighting and participants.  Importantly, such information is treated as confidential and those providing this information remain anonymous.
 
If you hear of anything resembling dogfighting and have information as to when and where, please call the Tip Line at 1-877-TIP-HSUS [847-4787].
 
We can make a difference!!
