    Good hope they all get thrown in jail for a long time. Retarded useless jackasses. No regard for animal respect and proper care.

    They should go to prison for what they did, every single one of them and stay there.No second chances and no time off for going behavior no plea bargains no bullshit. Anyone that lets them off easy should go to prison too.what they are doing is just cruel and all of them are cowards.Nothing but worthless cowards.I would like to see them get in a ring with a bunch of tigers and see how brave they are then.I will pray for the dogs to be rehabilitated and find good homes with loving people.Stop letting these cowards get away with this bullshit.Anyone who lets them get off easy should have their pictures put all over the media next to the cowards who do these horrible things.

    Leslie, I hope they go to hell too.what can us animal lovers do to put the pressure on the people who are responsible for their sentences.It is well past time for us to let these savages and cowards continue to get off so easy.We need to show others that this cruelty won’t be tolerated.These judges and prosecutors etc need to get tough and stay tough.Does someone know how to get letters sent to the right people.We have to put pressure on these people.Can someone start a petition?.

    Animal abuse in any form is unforgivable. Treat them as they treated those animals …….. no more …. no less ….. for the duration of their lives ….. that would have been the fate of the dogs under their control. Course I wouldn’t so no to a double tap and not having to feed this type of 2 legged vermin.

    They should throw them in a pit and make them fight til the death. One pair at a time. The single person left standing- put him(her) down – not necessarily humanly!! They reap what they sow!!!!

    I feel for those poor dogs, and hope they will be able to lead normal lives the way god intended them to live. I hope those people pay the price for what they are doing to these pups. These people are low lives with no heart nor sous.
