Statement by The HSUS in Response to North Carolina Dogfighting Raid
Chris Schindler, manager of animal fighting law enforcement for The Humane Society of the United States, issued the following statement in response to Tuesday's raid of War Eagle Kennels, an alleged dogfighting operation in Duplin County, N.C.:
"We praise Duplin County Sheriff's Office for acting on information supplied by The Humane Society of the United States and exhibiting a zero-tolerance policy for this heinous cruelty. Dogfighting is a barbaric and inhumane practice, and this raid sends a message to organized animal fighters that North Carolina will not be a refuge for them."
