When Animals Attack

If I didn't warn you before, gentle reader, I should now. While I intend to devote this space to important issues and observations regarding music, technology, and current events, I will occasionally pander to the lowest common denominator. Today's entry is one of those times.

I recently came into possession of some shocking photos of what appears to be the goings-on at an illegal dog fighting ring. While it is not clear from these images where the dog fights take place or who might be involved, I bring them to your attention in the sincere hope that perhaps someone will recognize the poor animals or the background in these photos and be able to alert the authorities.

While dogs are unquestionably man's best friend, we seem determined to abuse their trust and loyalty by forcing them to fight, often to the death, for our amusement. In this particular case, it appears this was a handicap match - in which a single animal is forced to fight 2 or more opponents. It is a grisly and disturbing sight.

If you are still reading then I present, with no further editorializing, these grim photos of animals locked in mortal combat.

Here we see the beginning of the fight. Note the fear in the poor animal's eyes as she is mauled by a larger number of opponents:

Now the outnumbered animal begins to succumb:

Now the valiant animal is completely overwhelmed. The cruelty of Nature revealed in this starkest of horrors:

What can you do to prevent this outrage? Go here to find out.
