Success: Disgusting Dog Fighting Practice Targeted By Lawmakers

Target: Troy Singleton, State Senator for New Jersey

Goal: Support criminalization and stiff penalties for animal trunk fighting.

Dog fighting is tragically one of the most lucrative and underreported forms of animal cruelty in America. Sadistic abusers seemingly find newer and sicker methods to exploit these innocent animals daily. This ForceChange petition called for justice in one such horrific case. Now, a state can finally bring justice to hundreds or thousands more victims.

New Jersey’s legislature threw massive support behind a bill that would make animal trunk fighting a felony offense punishable with prison time. If you haven’t heard of this especially brutal crime, the torture involves trapping two dogs inside of a trunk. As these poor animals fight to the death, their “handlers” happily take bets from equally sick onlookers who cheer on the brutality. When the trunk is unlocked to the grotesque aftermath, the sadists who betted on the living dog are paid off.

One of the sponsors of this bipartisan bill stated, “when you hear of the heinous nature of it, there is no partisanship for issues like this. So, it passed overwhelmingly with no ‘no’ votes at all.” With the governor’s signature just a short time later, this important standard-setting legislation officially became law.

Sign the petition below to applaud an essential new tool in fighting animal cruelty.


Dear Senator Singleton,

Thank you and your co-sponsor for your significant roles in introducing and passing Senate Bill 975. As you stated, this animal cruelty legislation knows no party lines. The protection of innocent living beings entrusted to our care should never be violated in such a heinous manner.

Congratulations on this measure becoming law. Please continue supporting further important actions that can safeguard vulnerable animals.

  2. These monsters should be torn apart by the dogs until they die! JUSTICE

  3. Animal abusers globally must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less.

    • Totally agree, I wish you and I could rid the world of every single one of them, wicked subhumans

      • I totally agree as well.Eradication of all these psychopathic animal torturing murdering monstersubhumans from the planet must be introduced into the Animal Protection Laws.

    • They deserve EXACTLY what they have subjected these poor animals to. These SO CALLED ‘humans’ are a waste of space and air on this planet. Not ready for birth either, just rid this planet of them ALL. Punish them severely, its all they are worth. SHAME ON them ALL, THEY ARE DISGUSTING, TRULY DISGUSTING.

    These people are pure garbage. They don’t have any empathy for either humans or animals. Animal fighting is tied to drug trade and human and animal trafficking and WORSE! When are the lawmakers going to realize how truly dangerous this is???

  5. All animal abusers globally must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less.

    What kind of sick, twisted person thought this up? Wow….very disturbing!

  7. Pits used to be called Nanny Dogs. They are not the evil breed most people wrongly assume they are. But vicious men want to make a buck and do this evil to innocent dogs. I don’t even think a trial is needed for this type of offense. I do hoop they don’t see any daylight for years upon years and they don’t deserve any light at the end of their dark tunnel.
