Dog Fighting

Dog fighting is an extremely cruel and illegal activity which breeds dogs to be vicious and aggressive animals. While some breeds are already potentially more aggressive than others, dog fighters purposely train their dogs in order to bring out these aggressive traits. In addition to the horrible injuries these dogs are trained to inflict on each other, they also pose a danger to people who accidentally encounter these animals and are attacked.

Getting attacked unexpectedly by someone’s pet is a shocking and potentially devastating occurrence. If you or someone you love has been injured in an animal attack, a Michigan dog bite lawyer with Ravid & Associates, P.C., can help you take action and pursue compensation for your injuries. Contact us today at 877-PET-BITE for more information on your legal rights.

Dog Fighting Statistics

Dog fighting has existed for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 19th century that laws finally began being enforced and public disdain for such practices grew. Even so, dog fighting still occurs with startling regularity in the U.S. today. Here are some quick statistics about illegal dog fighting:

  • Over the past 15-20 years, spontaneous street fights with dogs have been on the rise, in addition to the “traditional” planned matches
  • Over a thousand arrests were made for dog fighting in the U.S. between 2003 and 2008
  • An estimated 40,000 individuals are involved in professional dog fighting in the U.S.
  • While exact amounts are hard to pin point, a top bet in a professional dog fight can go up to $100,000

These statistics are alarming, not only because the cruelty of dog fights is horrendous, but also because of the threat these animals trained for killing pose to the public.
