No words for this madness. The people who do this to dogs should be locked up like the dogs and not for fifteen minutes but at least an hour.

A terrible new trend comes from the United States and is spreading like wildfire in the world of dog fighting: the trunking.
The practice, designed to make the quarrels between Pitbull and other species even more bloody, is the new fashion of illegal betting and can scarcely be intercepted by the authorities, due to its nomadic nature.

The operation of these new fighting is shocking: two dogs are pitted against each other repeatedly and then locked up in the back of a truck or in the trunk of a car, the "trunk".
Bettors raise in the car the music at full volume, so that no one notices about what's going on, and they begin to wander aimlessly through the streets.
As soon as the hustle and bustle of dog fighting stops, the vehicle is stopped and the dog that will be found dead will be thrown on the roadside or in the surrounding vegetation, then the survivor will begin a new cruel combat.

For a long time it was thought that the "trunking" was an urban myth, fueled by rumors about the Web
In recent times, however, the Miami-Dade Animal Service Department in Florida has received many reports about this practice and some perpetrators have even been caught out, thus confirming the existence of this cruel reality.

Last week, for example, a witness reported the sighting to the association of a man, intent on a van load of animal carcasses and download.
Alerted the authorities, it was discovered a round of fighting that involved at least five people, plus a sort of farm-lager at the home of one of the bettors:

"The kennels had no food, water or adequate protection.
Dogs were between feces and urine, and their conditions have appeared serious.
There are puncture wounds, one of the dogs had a broken ankle and an injured eye.
Another dog was bitten all over his body and had open wounds on his face "

Thus, a spokesman for the association.

The owner of the animals has not yet been found, although it has been identified, and when the police will be able to get him he will be arrested on charges of cruelty to animals.

The Miami-Dade County has for years prohibited the possession of Pitbull, extreme solution due to the exponential growth of the fighting.

Incredible how horrible
