It's About Time

I don't know about all of you, but I have been really concerned about this issue for a long time. I mean, it's always on the news, small fights are taking place in every neighborhood, we all know it is an issue, it is just about time this is now a law on the books somewhere.
I mean seriously, haven't we all heard about a hog-dogfight gone wrong recently?
Unfortunately, I did a little googling, and this is more prevalent than I want to believe. But, it is restricted to the southern part of the US it seems. Hmmmm. Go figure. And I think you all know, I don't want any animals hurt, furry, fuzzy, or curly-tailed.

But, good Lord. Can they not keep this stuff out of the papers so that everyone doesn't think this is an accurate representation of the south?


Charges dropped in SC hog-dogfighting case

More Information
CHESTER, S.C. The attorney general's office has dropped charges against two people accused of participating in hog and dog fights in Chester County.
Chester County's former animal control director Vicky Land and Arthur Parker Jr. were indicted in 2005 on charges involving fights between hogs and dogs.
Parker had been charged with ill treatment of animals, possession of a dangerous animal and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Land was charged with being present at animal fighting and misconduct in office.
Attorney general spokesman Mark Plowden told The Herald of Rock Hill the charges were dropped because hog and dog fighting was not clearly defined as a crime under laws in place at the time.
The law now specifically makes hog-dog fighting illegal.
