Hello to all

It’s with a heavy heart I’m writing this, and the reason is that I want to spread the word so that all who read this will feel, think, realise and, hopefully react against and do all they can to influence in whatever they can, cruelty against animals.

What am I talking about?

Headlines on the BBC News and other forms of media in the last 24 hours have highlighted an absolutely barbaric and abhorrent Dog Fight in Birmingham, England.
The atrocious acts involve men ranging from 16 to 40 – apparently a group of up to 10 of them (and these are the ones that were caught red-handed), setting up the biggest and most cruel dog fight staged in a person’s (and I use the word person with trepidation here), *home kitchen for the entertainment of some very sick ,twisted and perverted monsters !!!

Police officials who became involved because the jeering and commotion was heard outside the premises, say that this is the worst act of cruelty involving dog fights in the UK since the times of Queen Victoria in the 18 hundreds, in Southwark, London.

The obvious problems speak for themselves – Monsters committing obscenely cruel and barbaric acts against defenceless and vulnerable animals MUST BE STOPPED!!! – however this is what the prosecution Judge dished out as punishment to these despicable less than human individuals -

A 4 month prison sentence and correction – as in education to prevent them doing this again (can you believe this???) and these individuals are not allowed to have a pet dog for the next 5 years!!
Is this judgement fair? No need to answer that question – we all know the answer!!

How can this be allowed to be treated as a minor slap on the wrist offence?

I know there are thousands of animal lovers in this group – and that is why I am writing this and hoping to spread the word – because even if you think you are not able to make a difference – you are – We can all make a difference – by firstly being aware, and then the rest is up to each individual about how they are able to act against these crimes against our fellow creatures who need our help!

The WWF and RSPCA do get involved and are actively seeking to stamp out these monstrous cruel acts against animals in structured organised ways that actually do see change happening.


To all members reading this in the UK – the only way this can be eradicated on a society level which is PERMANENT – is for the laws to change against cruelty to animals! – And to keep our ears and eyes open!!

What deterrent is a 4 month sentence and being prohibited from owning a pet dog for 5 years I ask?

Probably nothing at all!!

Is that good enough? – ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!

I am interested to hear from all that are in any way involved in or are able to be involved in doing something – in whatever capacity to act against these crimes being committed
If a human child or adult are treated in this way the penalties for assault, manslaughter or even murder are far more severe – Why are we not treating our fellow inhabitants on this planet with the equal respect and protection that they so rightly deserve?

Make no mistake – these are hard core criminals setting up dogs to fight to the death for their entertainment – Do we really have a place for them in our societies? Should they be allowed to get away with this with a slap on the wrist?

These monsters are MURDERERS and must be made accountable for their actions!!!*

I hope we can take this as seriously as it is and that the animal lovers, decent people, and those in positions that can actually facilitate change that has to take place, (of whom there are thousands in this very group) – will rise to the occasion and hopefully we can begin a course of action that makes change HAPPEN!!
