IL - Sheriff's police raid dog-fighting ring at day care home
I am so sick and tired of this. I honestly will never, ever understand. Dog's are meant for love and companionship and that's all they live for. I can't even say what I want to happen to the owner of the dogs.
***WARNING*** Graphic descriptions of injured dogs
CHICAGO - Cook County sheriff's police said they seized nine mutilated and abused dogs this week from a dogfighting ring operating out of a Maywood day care home.

Lucy's mom - What a horrific article I am sick to my stomach and sitting her asking myself how anyone can do the things talked about in this article. There can be no hope for humanity when men can lie to themselves about the things they are doing the way these people are. I am at a loss, whenever I read things like this, as to what to do with these people. I class them with the worst sex offenders, unsalvagable. That they can profit from, and ENJOY causing so much pain and devastation is not something I can wrap my brain around. Add to that that neighbors said they had called the cops SEVERAL TIMES with no response...
Alcatraz is empty, correct? I want to start a petition to reopen Alcatraz, no guards, no supplies, nothing. Gotta keep the cost down - Just take these a$$holes and chuck 'em in, we could drop them in from a helicopter. I want the job shoving them out the door. They are worse than animals, they can go be animals away from society. ALL OF THEM! You get popped for hurting kids or animals, in you go....maybe that would slow them down. Why do we still call these things human?? Gives the rest of us a bad name..My posts and their content are MY OPINION unless I have provided a link

Three people were arrested and nine dogs were found during the raid on a licensed home day care in Maywood, including one with a leg twisted backward, another whose limbs appeared to have been nearly torn off and a puppy that had had an eye ripped out. Ten children were being watched at the time, police said...
In the garage, police found an 18-month-old pit bull with three 4-week old puppies. They were all kept in a wire cage soaked in feces and urine, and all were emaciated. Police believe the puppies were already being used in fights as "bait dogs"...

July 2010 - the case sparks new legislation:
lawyers worked with the Cook County Sheriff's Department to craft the comprehensive bill, which would make it a Class 3 Felony to stage a dog fight within 1,000 feet of a school, public park, playground, daycare center, or group home. Rep. Karen Yarborough and Sen. Kimberly Lightford sponsored the measure, H.B. 5790, and the Cook County Sheriff's Department, Best Friends Animal Society, Safe Humane Chicago and Steve Dale's efforts helped lead to its passage.
H.B. 5790 sailed through the Illinois Legislature and was now on Governor Pat Quinn's desk.
Governor Pat Quinn signed H.B. 5790 into law 07/17/10 (with Rou, a pit bull, in attendance)
They should have made all dog-fighting a Class 3 felony, wherever it takes place.
