Let the dog out

I can't believe it! another 300 dogs specially Pit bulls were confiscated in a Dogfight Facility raided by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) last, March 30, 2012.

The facility are being operated by same south Korean Nationals caught last December in Indang, Cavite.
The dogs are being match to kill each other and broadcasted in the internet for betting audience.

Local animal rights group, the Philippine Animal Welfare Society(PAWS), said a check on the animals showed that many were severely injured, with ripped ears and tongues, including 20 that needed to be euthanised.
PAWS programme director Anna Cabrera said her group was now coordinating with other agencies to try and rehabilitate the pitbulls, many of which had not been properly fed or sheltered.
She said many more could be put down if no help arrived.
"The government simply does not have a facility big enough to hold these animals," she said, adding that the pitbulls were bred for fighting and could not be placed together in a single cage.

The sad part is that the South Koreans and Pilipino caretakers that been arrested had been release after posting bail. 

I appeal to our lawmakers to support HOUSE BILL 5849, filed by Congresswoman Bernadette Herrera-Dy, which seeks to put longer prison terms and higher fines for animal offenders.
