Bloodied Dog Used For ‘Bait’ in Fights and Found Wandering the Streets Deserves Justice

Target: Major Wayne Adkins, Broward Police Chief
Goal: Find person responsible for using innocent dog as “bait” for dog fighting.

A bloodied dog named Atlas was found wandering the streets. His face was gashed, bruised, and bleeding. His eyes were nearly swollen shut.

When rescuers arrived, Atlas was barely able to see and was experiencing blood loss and other internal injuries. Atlas was found wandering aimlessly in a parking lot in Pompano Beach.

Rescuers, from both South Florida Cats and Kittens and I Heart, assumed custody of Atlas and rushed him to a veterinary hospital where he received treatment for his extensive injuries.

According to representatives from I Heart, Atlas’ injuries are consistent with being used as a “bait dog” in a dog fighting ring. He does not appear to have been hit by a car.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Adkins,

It appears a dog fighting ring is on-going in your jurisdiction. A bloodied dog named Atlas was found wandering the streets. His face was gashed, bruised, and bleeding. His eyes were nearly swollen shut.

When rescuers arrived, Atlas was barely able to see and was experiencing blood loss and other internal injuries. Atlas was found wandering aimlessly in a parking lot in Pompano Beach.

Rescuers, from both South Florida Cats and Kittens and I Heart, assumed custody of Atlas and rushed him to a veterinary hospital where he received treatment for his extensive injuries.

According to representatives from I Heart, Atlas’ injuries are consistent with being used as a “bait dog” in a dog fighting ring. He does not appear to have been hit by a car.

Please ensure that your department uses all resources necessary to finding and capturing the people involved in this dog fighting ring and, in particular, the person responsible for Atlas’ abuse.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

    maybe there are to many higher ranking others involved for the police to be bothered,unfortuantly but there were 2 sports people caught in one and nothing happened to them welcomed back into the arms of the sport

    All dogs want is to be loved and they are loyal to you till the day they die. It breaks your heart at the extent of abuse and suffering this poor dog has gone through. This person needs jail time a heavy fine and be registered as an animal abuser and never be allowed to own dogs again.
    The judges do not do anyone favours when they let these abusers off. Hopefully the judge will give a harsh sentence when they are caught. And the law changed to guardian instead of owner.

  8. Candy Taylor says:

    Police need to stop these weak cowards from using dogs for their very weak lives. VERY WEAK.. Find them and Jail them or give them to the dogs for karma.

  9. Jo Alberson says:

    Totally agree better yet find a sharks in ocean dump them and let them feel the pain this poor baby suffered

  10. Think cops will risk their lives for dogs? These dog fighters are armed and police just look the other way, they don’t care.

  11. Michelle Stewart says:

    Anyone involved in dog fighting must be shot dead

  12. And I’m told we are in the 21st Century…?

  13. Unfortunately, if the dog fighting syndicates are anything like the ones here in RSA… you’ll find the cops, vets, in fact, any supporting institution associated with dog fighting WILL be involved… somehow… esp paybacks from the winnings 🙁 So unless you go underground yourself, you’ll never knows ‘in’ and who’s not. Hey, I wouldn’t be surprised if the local court judge isn’t involved too…. the evilness of dog fighting runs deep and is widespread 🙁

  14. Agree all comments give them to the dogs. Kill these bastards who do this.

  15. Jennifer L FINIZIO says:

    What special kind of scum ebgages in dogfighting? It’s 2023….who the F thinks this is entertainment? Rot in hell

  16. Urszula Lund says:

    Crimes committed against animals are more and more grotesque because the punishment for animal-abuse is not harsh enough and in many cases non-existent. A slap on the wrist is the mockery of animal victims. This dehumanized and desensitized sadistic psychopath must be found and harshly punished. He must also be forbidden from owning animals ever again!

    SHAME on all those who are guilty of the fate of their extremely suffering and dying animals. whether in the past, present or future.
    it’s a fucking shame.
    why why why???
    so many different animals are being raped, tortured with joy and/or with blatant sadism.
    the government MUST make new laws and change old ones.
    rot in hell you goddamn hellbitch
