I absolutely believe this. In our old, not so great neighborhood a guy pulled up in a car when I was walking my pit bull and asked to buy her. Another guy started talking to me and seemed to be leading up to something shady, don't know what because I left.

Call your local law enfocement and ask what agency handles suspected dog fighting intelligence. It may be law enfoement, it may be a SPCA or the humane society, but get to the main agancy that sucessfully goes after suspected dog fighting issues.

Contact them and give the FACTS, leave out your personal beliefs and emotions (which may question your interpretation of events) so they are working on unbias facts amd suspicions.

How come with long time members, the topics are like " any tips on how to teach my dog to fetch", and with these random new members it's topics like "my pit bull attacked me and i'm pregnant" or "my neighbor fights dogs" like tabloid b.s. Just my thought.
There are just as many hot button topics from long time posters. As an FYI pets and dogs are not just all warm and fuzzy subjects. Just as much valuable information and opinions (both sides of an issue) comes out when open discussion is allowed. To only want one-side or one direction type post that deal with the warm and fuzzy only, harms more than it helps.

These hot topics also have a tendency to educate people more than just asking "Is my dog is cute?" or "Does your dog sleep in your bed with you?" Dog fighting is real and exchanging info on this subject lets other know whats going on AND what to do.

I guess it's just my own thing that someone with a little bit more rep and post count I tend to give more credibility. Too many people create an account, stir things up and 8 pages later, nothing is really said.

Anyway, back to subject, what do you say? Call the cops, dogfighting is bad?
