The past few days brought two news articles concerning pit bulls.

Story #1 ELLEN:
Ellen, one of the pit bulls rescued from Michael Vick's dog fighting operation, had to be euthanized because of illness. This poor dog (and all the other dogs taken advantage of by this cruel sport) did not have the type of life they deserved. Ellen never made it to a forever home but through it all she surprised everyone who came in touch with her with her wonderful personality. By court order, Vick's victims were not allowed to interact directly with visitors to the shelter(s) where they lived, a tragedy for animals of this breed who are docile, gentle and trusting by nature before they are abused and turned into fighting machines by people.


The carcass of a dead pit bull was found inside a cooler floating in the waters off Long Island. The dog,  brown, 2 or 3 year old, 40 lb. female, did not have any tags or identifiers on her. Could this pit bull death be related to dog fighting or is it animal cruelty of another type.

Dead female pit bull:

Humanity should be ashamed of itself. We may be intelligent but we are certainly lacking in compassion.
