signed. Bite back at dogfighting everywhere! Anyone attending a fight should be charged with aiding and ahem...a-betting- a crime! Make the fools do community service in PINK jumpsuits and baby hats. I think they would quickly lose their "coolness". Oh? Is that cruel and unusual punishment? Are their little egos going to be damaged beyond repair? One could only hope.

Dog fighting is one of the lowest acts of betrayal by man to the animals,and all involved should ashamed for their treatment of these poor dogs ,who are forced by cruel and inhuman treatment to become a fighting dog ,shame on all of you.

Let's put an end to dog fighting, and ask ALL PROFESSIONAL SPORTS to make conviction for animal, child, or domestic abuse AUTOMATIC grounds for contract termination. STOP MAKING HEROES OUT OF AMORAL THUGS.

This is the most shameful NON-"sport". Anything which could put an end to this violence, should be encouraged. I hope the permit is granted! Signed and noted!

Thank you for your interest in helping HSUS get the End Dogfighting%u2122 Campaign started in Philadelphia. Due to the overwhelming response of signatures in such a brief period of time we are now closing this petition in order to bring it to the city of Philadelphia. Thank you for being the voice needed on behalf of fighting dogs everywhere.

To have to sign a petition to stop dogfighting is absurd, it should be treated as a crime against animal.
