      Bedford, TX

I was ignorant as to what a bait dog was until JUDY brought it to my attention when she RESCUED NATHAN. Now I am determine to get officials to make the consequences of dog fighting so severe that it will fade from society within my life time.This is cruel and unusual punishment for dogs, who are loyal by nature. We would like TEXAS  to take the lead in cracking down on this illegal activity and challange other states to do the same.

      Mayor Price, Nathan suffered so much - please don't let his life & death be in vain! Instead of fighting dogs in Ft. Worth, let's fight the current laws & make them stronger against Dog Fighting. Make the guilty sentences harsher to help set an example! We are the Voice for those who cannot Speak! We are Nathan's voice & for all the others who have suffered. I imagine many of those who suffered did not even get the love & attention (of someone like Judy or a rescue person) like Nathan did in his last days/hours!! We are Nathan's Voice now ... Thank You Judy & Diana for inspiring this petition!! May this torture & inhumane activity be stopped & prevent other dogs such horrific abuse... in Nathan's Honor!

      Dogs have feelings too, people need to understand that and also dogs can speak for themselves. People need to be punshed for abusing, dog fighting, and any other horrible stuff for dogs. We need to fight for animals too, they are Gods Animals too!
