"They'll take a small puppy and they'll start beating him, even at the age of five - six weeks old, they'll start beating him, kicking the animal, flinging him, brutalizing the animal because all they want it for is to fight,"

Sergeant Steve Brownstein
Chicago Detective



"I was in a fourth grade classroom--10-year-olds, 11-year-olds--and the subject came up, I said, `Let's talk about dog fighting. Who has seen dog fighting?' Every hand shot up. I said, `I don't mean Molly slipping out of the yard.' Every hand. It was unanimous. The kids said it happens all the time, in the alleys."
