Dog fighting is a barbaric sport, but it’s unfortunately only getting more and more popular. In July 2009, the American Humane Society organized a raid to rescue hundreds of dogs from the fangs of dog-fighting rings. Of all the terrible cases these animal activists saw, one, in particular, has stayed with them: Stallone’s torn-up face. His wounds shows the true nature of dog fighting:
Stallone is just one dog among countless others who die slow and painful deaths when they are pitted against one another in the arena. The animals have no other choice: They are like gladiators; they fight to the death. Stallone’s last moments are a heartbreaking reminder that these dogs aren’t necessarily born aggressive. These “fighters” are really just normal dogs who need the same love and care as every other living thing. You can see the goodness in his face. Make sure his story isn’t forgotten and let’s try and prevent more like it! Share this with your friends.
