Dogs Used in Horrendous Game of "Trunking" Rescued in South Miami-Dade

Apparently regular old dog fighting isn't inhumane and horrible enough for some people.

Miami-Dade County Animal Services say they have rescued a group of dogs from the Goulds area used in a form of dog fighting called "trunking."

"[They] put the dogs in the trunk, lock it up, and they run around, put the music on very, very loud so no one can hear it," Dahlia Canes, a rep of Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation, told Local 10. "After 10 or 15 minutes, they stop. The dead dog they throw out and the winner keeps going with it."

A concerned good Samaritan called Animal Services Wednesday to report that a man in Goulds has been seen repeatedly placing dogs in his truck. Authorities investigated and found horrendous conditions. Five adults dogs and four puppies were rescued. Many appear to be pit bulls. The dogs were kept in kennels without food or water.

Many of the dogs had sustained injuries, including scars on their faces, open wounds, a broken ankle, and a damaged eye.

However, authorities have yet to find the person responsible.

What is it with these savage Negros? Can't we just send them back to Africa or something?

Not sure about the whole of Miami but certainly Dade County has a SHOCKING record on Animal-Rights,the Bogus DR Pizano who I understand has been removed at last,the neo-Nazi Sean Gallagher who took pleasure Murdering Dogs.Very Sick

Armando, you might consider that the wealthy, über cultivated class has much more horrible means of inflicting even worse suffering... Like armies, nuclear weapons and such. They psychos are everywhere.

The subhuman who did this is probably on welfare too.

@Armando, I work in these neighborhoods providing therapy to abused children. I guess when you grow up brutalized you learn to brutalize those that are weaker than you. I'm not excusing this behavior by far, nor am I saying that I understand what people in these neighborhoods have been through, but from my experience this is the conclusion I've come up with. People in Cocoplum and Coral Gables abuse animals also, I guess they're more quiet about it. Remember the story of the doctor in a ritzy neighborhood here in Miami who nailed his beagle to a tree? At least someone in this disadvantaged neighborhood had enough sense and empathy to report it.

This type of horrific behavior is overwhelmingly found in lower socio economic status areas and typically those individuals share a lack of education. It's frightening how someone can be so insensitive to suffering and pain. This is the type of sociopathic behavior that has a lack of empathy for anything or anyone except themselves. My question is.....why?......culture? Poverty? Why is this behavior so often found in the same poor, minority neighborhoods?....i dont see dog fighting in coco plum or coral gables......but we see it in homestead, cutler ridge, overtown etc........why?

The person that can kill an animal can easily kill a human being. Don't put them in jail to get fat and live off of our tax money. Put a bullet in his head and get it over with, they are parasites of society and there is no need to keep them around any way!

People are so shocked by these stories as they should be...but it's really lawmakers and a lax penal system that allows these crimes to continue.

This just makes me sick to my stomach. How can people take advantage of other creatures like that? Let's play with it, let it have a slow torture death, and throw it out to rot on the side of the road. This is terrible!

^^^Completely agree with you. And I wonder how they fuck they come up with these cruel forms of entertainment. I, for one, don't find it the least bit entertaining to watch two dogs fight to the death, nor do I find it entertaining to put a dog in a trunk until it dies. People are horrible and I wish people like this would just die. There I said it!

This is seriously disgusting! I can't even fathom the person who thinks this is ok?!?!

Why are people entertained by such cruelty? Has society desensitized people so much that they are immune to horrid acts of violence and in some cases amused. These games are disgusting, and tragic. Wish they would stick themselves in the trunk too and see who makes it out then. Punks.

Why are people like this allowed to walk among us? The human (bored) mind is diabolical.

Yikes, I'm not sure how many people see a $35 lunch as 'affordable'.   Also, if I'm spending that much, the staff better be on point.
