After they have been saved or adopted, bait dogs are frequently encountered. These are a few of my all-time favorite tales to share and narrate. However, I think this video is crucial because it illustrates how these dogs are found, in my opinion.
Sharing this video can help highlight the terrible lives these dogs led before being saved and the need for stronger international regulations against dog fighting.
Michigan Humane Society Officers are joined by Tom McPhee, Executive Director of the World Animal Awareness Society (WA2S), Producer & Director of the American Strays series, as they find new dogs being used as “bait” for fighting dogs. Watch their cameras as they capture the atrocious conditions these dogs are made to endure.
Broken bones, untreated wounds, tied lips, maggots, and malnutrition are common problems for bait dogs.
According to Jenny Jackson, one of the Michigan Humane Society’s officers, “We respond to dog fights all year.”
You should be aware that street fighters are young. They are just young kids fighting dogs, any dogs they can get, and they are taking pit bulls, tying them up in abandoned yards, and fighting them in parks. Additionally, it is unlikely that they will receive adequate housing, food, and medical care. They’ll frequently just be forgotten.
The Michigan Humane Society and WA2S were fortunately there to assist these two pit bulls. However, there are countless additional dogs that require rescue.
Advisory: This video contains graphic material. However, we guarantee that the tale has a happy conclusion.
