Facebook - you are losing out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to use your platform & power to make a real difference in the life and future of many pf these beautiful creatures that we are given guardianship over--- instead of feeding the very depraved minds of those who perpetuate these kinds of atrocities - and their very depraved viewers.......PLEASE reconsider your choice.

Perfectly said,Maureen.It's time for us to draw the line & see which side Facebook is on.By condoning this atrocity ( illegal atrocity ) they are giving a green light to all things associated with dog fighting ( stealing pets to use as bait dogs,drugs,weapons,the list goes on )

FACEBOOK IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN LIFE BY ALLOWING PEOPLE TO POST WHAT IS TRULY GOING ON IN THE WORLD SO THAT LIGHT IS SHED ON THE SUBJECT AND CHANGES CAN TRULY BE MADE. SHUTTING THEM DOWN WILL ONLY ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE FIGHTING IN THE DARK WITHOUT PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE. FACEBOOK ISN'T CHURCH IT IS REAL LIFE. FACEBOOK IS GIVING YOU THE INFORMATION AND PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR TRUE CHANGE. IT DOESN'T MEAN FACEBOOK CONDONES ANYTHING, QUITE THE OPPOSITE ACTUALLY. IF FACEBOOK CONDONED DOG...

You do realize REMOVING any of these pages and groups does not help the animals that are in danger... All it does is remove it from your sight. Not only did you just help these animals become victims, but you also helped these bad guys get away. There are pages and authorities out there, who DEPEND on people who are concerned for animals well being to report this sort of issue to them. Such as the Anti dogfighting campaign who investigate dog fighting pages and groups all while working with...

Also I don't know why you all think FB reports this type of issue to authorities, or humane society when they do not. By the way that Tanoli page, was under investigation, so congrats to you getting it removed before everything was collected and sent to the HS.

The reason facebook won't do anything about this is because they have a monopoly on the web. I mean really, plus they hide behind the name facebook.

When I read this petition it sounds as if it is asking to eliminate breed specific legislation & I'm not sure I can back that. I think that communities should have a lot if leeway to make laws that reflect what they want for their community.

no no no. it's not a community by community issue. it's global. are you saying in the Appalachian mountains its okay to enjoy a dog fight but in inner cities not?? what are you saying exactly?

In addition to dog fighting we all need our local law enforcement to eagerly seek out cock fights and our courts to get very serious in punishing these creeps.

However contrary to many on this thread I do hope that people realize that in some portions of America trapping is the only method available of feeding local populations. Many residents of Alaska have no access to grocery stores what-so-ever. They also have no mail or parcel delivery for several months during winter. To some degree...

Many residents of Alaska have no access to grocery stores what-so-ever. They also have no mail or parcel delivery for several months during winter. To some degree trapping must remain legal. Problems with bears, wild hogs and coyotes are frequent reasons for the legitimate use of traps.

FACEBOOK ALSO NEEDS TO HELP STOP DOG FIGHTING! BY GIVING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PEOPLE OR GROUPS INVOLVED IN THESE BARBARIC ACTS, TO THE AUTHORITIES, SO THOSE PEOPLE CAN BE ARRESTED AND JUSTICE SERVED! PLEASE ASK FACEBOOK!!!

unfortunately the laws are such that jail time is waived, court costs too minimal and they just move their fun to another location. something to be said for vigilante justice . oops sorry slip of the tongue....

I wonder if they showed graphic violent photo shopped pictures against Zuckerberg, if they would ban them. Facebook continually shows every day that they don't give a rat's ASS about the people who are on Facebook, and I for one am very close to closing my account for good. They should not allow graphic violent pictures against anyone or anything, EVER!

I am against deleting the message on fb regarding mistreatment, abuse, fighting, vivisection, and so on for the animals, for the simple fact that it is silent on the terrible events that need all the attention, be known and fought.
On the other hand, I understand that there are people who take them as a source of inspiration and imitation, but as with everything, there is always a downside and so you have to figure out if it's worth that two people take ideas and make evil out of 100 who...

we have on FB organizations against inhumane treatment of animals such as slaughtering of horses why the hoopla in keeping our mouths shut on dog and cock fighting? FB is a social website, it's not all about picking flowers and how great ones life is, it's a where are you to open the eyes of people that have their head in the sand and refuse to recognize the awful plight of animals and humans. don't be scared, speak out , you'll feel worthy for once
