Raid Busts Up Nation's Largest Dog Fighting Rings

"TUCSON, Ariz. – A year long investigation ended Tuesday night with six people arrested and more than a 100 dogs seized in what is being called the nation’s largest dog fighting and dog-fight breeding ring.

The raid took place near Tucson, Ariz., where Pima County sheriff’s deputies served warrants and the Humane Society of the United States took custody of 150 dogs. Ninety-nine percent of the animals were pit bulls.

Authorities also found more than 50 weapons, thousands of dollars in cash, training materials and a rape stand used for breeding female pit bulls."

--- I understand there is big money to be made in all forms of gambling, but I couldn't imagine making my dogs fight.

So, the thought of making any dogs fight just for fun is just unthinkable.
