Gypsy Needs Our Help!! Tuesday, 10:43 PM

There is a horrible dog fighting animal cruelty case involving a dog named Gypsy, who was used as bait for training the fighting dogs. She sustained severe wounds on her face and body, and had to have one leg amputated. To read her full story, click here on these two sites, but be warned, the pics of her injuries are VERY GRAPHIC and not for the sensitive!

To help pay for her medical care, please buy a car magnet to help raise money for Gypsy by clicking here:

5/4 URGENT PETITION! Wednesday, 12:09 PM
I just created this petition and would appreciate if you would sign and cross-post wherever possible.

A horribly mutilated pit-bull, named Gypsy, was found on April 11, 2005 dumped on a main highway (Wilkinson Blvd) and her wounds appear to be the result of dog-fighting. Her injuries were so severe, her right-front leg had to be amputated due to the extent of mutilation and infection. According to reports, the flesh on her face was literally rotting off, and when she first arrived at Tri-County Animal Rescue, her mouth was "nothing but pus". Tri-County Animal Rescue stated that the dog was "a bloody mess" when she was found on the roadside.

No one has been charged and no arrests have been made. A report was filed with Cramerton Police Department, but no further action has been taken. Other recent reports of dog-fighting have gone un-investigated in Gaston County. We feel that this demonstrates a
frightening trend around a very serious crime. Dog-fighting is a public safety issue as well as an animal cruelty issue, and entire communities suffer from these criminal activities. It is simply not acceptable for these acts of violence to go unpunished.

Pictures of Gypsy's injuries can be found here:
These are very disturbing pictures as I'm sure that you can see for yourself.

We realize that Stephanie Hamlin, Assistant District Attorney for Gaston County has contacted and stated that the members of the Gaston County District Attorney's office are
very interested in prosecuting the Gypsy case. If we have any additional leads or suspects, we will call Animal Control at 704-922-8677 or the DA's office 704.852-3113 .

We petition you, Honorable Michael Lands, that you vigorously investigate and prosecute dog-fighting crimes in Gaston County. We appreciate your and Stephanie Hamlin's work in this matter.

Yes she has pulled at alot of peoples heart strings. Poor girl has been through so much and now has alot of people that care about her. I hope that she gets placed in the best home possible where she can be spoiled forever. There is no reason for anyone to do this kind of hurt and damage to any animal. Gypsy is so lucky to have lived through this horrible ordeal.
