From Mark Scieszinski, petition creator: Close to 2,000 people signed our petition that sent letters and emails to Facebook. We expressed our displeasure at Facebook allowing pages that promoted animal abuse. Facebook has since removed the page that intitated our protest and has announced that there will be more vigilance taken to prevent these types of pages from opening in the future.

https://www.facebook.com/#!/DogFightRightsAdvocacyGroupToLegalizeK9Combat endorses dog fighting. Dog fighting is a cruel illegal activity that brutalizes, maims, and kills dogs for the amusement of the human participants. This heinous activity has done more to damage the reputation of several dogs breed and taint them as vicious killers. Allowing a page on Face Book to remain unchallenged and receiving "hits" and "Likes" is an endorsement of this illegal activity. FaceBook should remove this page and any reference to it and continue to police its pages to prevent pages that promote morally reprehensible activity to florish on thier website.

      There is NO reason for Facebook to allow pages to be shown that glorify such a horrendous (illegal) past-time as dog fighting.
