Dog Bait

Dear Barack Obama,

I am coming to you with a deep concern about this so called dog bait situation. I am a huge animal lover and the fact that there are people out there who use helpless animals just so their dogs will learn how to attack is sickening. I researched this and found out that they cut the dogs faces with knives so they will bleed. Then the dogs who are getting trained will immediately want to attack the other dog after the first taste of blood. These dogs suffer heavy heavy bleeding, raptured lungs, broken bones, and other life threatening injuries. If the losers of these matches do not DIE of their injuries they are tortured to death for humiliating there owners. The only rare exception is if the owners feel the dogs are worth salvaging because they can make them money. Sometimes the owners of the dogs used for dog bait will rip their jaws out so they cannot fight back. What if this was humans we were talking about instead of dogs? I don't know about anyone else, but where I come from dogs are like kids to many families. Would you sir just sit around and let your dog be treated like that or even your daughters? This is a very WRONG situation that needs to be handled immediately and I will not stop my mission to get this issue resolved until something major is done here.

Thank you!
