Petition To make dog-hog rodeos illegal in Alabama

In Clarke County, Alabama a cruel source of entertainment is held. They call it hog/dog rodeos. This is where they say they can show off a dogs hunting skills by putting the dog in the ring with a pig. The dogs, mostly pit bulls, will then attack the pig by biting it in the neck, snout or anywhere. The pig has no escape as the \"human handlers\" stomp on the pigs faces and kick them to the ground if they try to protect themselves, to allow the dogs to get a better \"lock-jaw\" bite. The pigs scream in pain as dogs chew their snouts, ears and tails and the crowd cheers and laughs. The kids are involved as well, racing to be the fist to wrestle down a pig with a taped snout and broken leg. People pay admission to sit on bleachers, hear music and watch as pigs are destroyed by dogs. This so called form of \"entertainment\" is nothing but cruel animal abuse at its worst. I need your help to shut down this horrible rodeo. Clarke County has not made any charges or arrest because there is controversy on if the rodeo is illegal or not. We need to make this illegal. And I believe it needs to be illegal in the whole state of Alabama. Who is to say they will not move to the next small town. You can help by signing this petition to have the hog/dog rodeos stopped. I will be sending this petition to the governor and state commissioner of Alabama in one month or less if we can get enough signatures. Please tell your friends and forward to anyone who can help.

  • Rhonda Pendleton This is just pure evil at its worst. These people should be ashamed of themselves.

  • krystian hordyjewicz please stop the living been abuse

  • Patricia Frazier In order to be considered human, compassion is necessary. Your behaviour lacks compassion for a sentient being. A pig has the intelligence of a 3 year old human. Would you allow 3 year old human children to be attacked by dogs? Stop this inhuman behaviour now.
