Breaking News: Dog Fighting Bust in Wisconsin

The ASPCA is currently on the ground assisting the Milwaukee Police Department and the District Attorney of Milwaukee County with a multi-site dog fighting raid in the City of Milwaukee. Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission is transporting, sheltering and caring for the dogs.

Today, eight search warrants were executed at eight crime scenes, where 23 suspected fighting dogs were seized. Investigators also discovered blood on basement walls as well as other evidence of dog fighting, including treadmills, wound treatment supplies and muscle building supplements.

Experts from the ASPCA Field Investigations & Response (FIR) team are on hand to assist with evidence collection and documentation. The ASPCA has been assisting local authorities with this dog fighting investigation for nearly a year.

Dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The ASPCA is committed to eradicating the blood sport. We have designated April 8 as the first National Dog Fighting Awareness Day to advance the conversation about dog fighting, and to encourage animal lovers across the country to take action against this brutal form of cruelty.

Please join the movement and take a stand. And stay tuned to ASPCA.org/blog for more information about this developing case.

Just to clear things up - I've been following this since day 1 of the first raid, which was actually June 10, 2011 and not 2009 like some people here have mistaken. On that day, 6 dogs were taken (seized). Since then, there's been up to 16 long term holds because of these inter-related fight cases. MADACC (Animal Control in Milwaukee) just took in 22 more. The ASPCA has been working (according to articles I've read) on the fight bust beginning a year ago. MADACC remains the caretaker for all of these dogs until such a time as a guilty or innocent verdict comes through in each individual case. I really hope the ASPCA can help with their enrichment during this process, and eventually help take/rehab those that can be rehabbed. Thank you!

It's great that they were caught, but I feel it took them way too long to investigate. What goes into the investigation that lasted almost a year long? I hope those dogs find a new home, and they were able to save them. Hopefully none of them will have to be put be down. They call dogs animals, those type of people are the animals. They better make them pay, big time. Maybe the person who sets the laws about animal control needs to find another type of job. Obviously he/she doesn't get it, or even care.

I hope the monsters responsible for this atrocity are forced to suffer as much as the dogs they tortured. Lock these monsters up and throw away the key.

I do hope that these so called human beings are put in jail and I hope they suffer as much as the dogs did. I also wonder what will happen to these poor dogs as I am not sure as to USA laws but I do know they would be rehomed after a rehabilitation period if they were in UK. Don't see so much of these type of things though here thank goodness.

You said it Perfectly Christine. All Animals deserve, forever - loving homes!!!
I pray that God can end Dog Fighting and any animal abuse and neglect of all kinds.

Pictures of the dogs that are found at these dog fighting rings should be posted at a site online to see if original dog owners can find their stolen dogs. I will bet many owners would love to get their dog back. All of the dogs should be medically treated too.

What can we do to be more involved in stopping dog fighting. this is something that literally haunts me about animals being forced and taught to fight. The bait dog is the one that my heart aches for the most. I would like to know ways that I can help the fight against this awful crime.

Russia's state-owned Nash Dom Primorye said at the Global Gaming Expo in Macau yesterday it is seeking private investors and companies to build casino resorts in a six-square-kilometer area in Vladivostok. <a href=http://www.ren-fest.com/userfiles/admin.asp?&#x30CA;&#x30A4;&#x30AD;-&#x30A8;&#x30A2;&#x30DE;&#x30C3;&#x30AF;&#x30B9;95/>&#x30CA;&#x30A4;&#x30AD; &#x30A8;&#x30A2;&#x30DE;&#x30C3;&#x30AF;&#x30B9;95</a> Environment-related stocks continued a strong run on speculations that the government will increase investment in environmental protection after air pollution plagued many cities recently. Beijing Capital Co, a sewage treatment company, rose 1.1 percent to 4.54 yuan. Tianjin Capital Environmental Protection Group Co jumped 5.5 percent to 5.53 yuan. <a href=http://www.prosol.ca/price.php?&#x30A2;&#x30D0;&#x30AF;&#x30ED;-&#x5E97;&#x8217;/>&#x30A2;&#x30D0;&#x30AF;&#x30ED; &#x5E97;&#x8217;</a> <a href=http://www.ren-fest.com/userfiles/ren.asp?&#x30A8;&#x30A2;&#x30B8;&#x30E7;&#x30FC;&#x30C0;&#x30F3;-&#x30B9;&#x30CB;&#x30FC;&#x30AB;&#x30FC;/>&#x30A8;&#x30A2;&#x30B8;&#x30E7;&#x30FC;&#x30C0;&#x30F3; &#x30B9;&#x30CB;&#x30FC;&#x30AB;&#x30FC;</a> NISSAN'S luxury car unit Infiniti, trailing its German peers, will become the first Japanese luxury brand to start production in China in 2014 as it drives toward carving a bigger slice of China's growing premium auto market.
SHAANXI Coal Industry is seeking to launch an initial public offering on the Shanghai Stock Exchange to raise 17.3 billion yuan (US$2.7 billion). <a href=http://www.saafis.com/save.php?&#x30B7;&#x30E7;&#x30EB;&#x30C0;&#x30FC;&#x30D0;&#x30C3;&#x30B0;-&#x30D6;&#x30E9;&#x30F3;&#x30C9;/>&#x30B7;&#x30E7;&#x30EB;&#x30C0;&#x30FC;&#x30D0;&#x30C3;&#x30B0; &#x30D6;&#x30E9;&#x30F3;&#x30C9;</a> To restore order, China created separate regulatory agencies for banking, securities, and the insurance industry in 1993. Financial institutions were allowed to operate only in one sector. Italy's borrowing costs spiked to dangerously high levels and the euro fell to a 16-month low against the dollar. US bank stocks fell on concerns that the debt crisis will spread through the financial industry. As of yesterday, more than 175,780 people had logged on the lawmakers' website to air their views, and more than 385,000 microblogs on sina.com have also lent their voices to the debate. The last policy change that drew nearly as big a response from the public was the Labor Contract Law, and that elicited only 190,000 comments in one month. <a href=http://www.woolentradenepal.com/data.php?&#x30EB;&#x30A4;&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3;-&#x30AB;&#x30BF;&#x30ED;&#x30B0;/>&#x30EB;&#x30A4;&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3; &#x30AB;&#x30BF;&#x30ED;&#x30B0;</a> The stock market's gains were tempered by a mixed batch of economic reports. First-time claims for unemployment benefits rose by 11,000 to 428,000 last week. Economists had forecast a decrease. The New York and Philadelphia branches of the Federal Reserve also reported weak manufacturing in their respective regions.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index was up 11.54 points at 1,440.13 and the Nasdaq composite index rose 20.07 points to 3,064.18. <a href=http://www.vafree.com/uploads/test.php?&#x30B0;&#x30C3;&#x30C1;/> &#x30B0;&#x30C3;&#x30C1;</a> THE slowdown in China's economy has taken its toll on corporate profits, but we see some light at the end of the tunnel. SHANGHAI'S new home sales last week fell below the 100,000-square-meter level again as buyers continued their extremely weak sentiment. Yesterday's decision, by US District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, comes days after she also slapped a pre-trial ban on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, a tablet computer that runs on Google Inc's Android and goes toe-to-toe with the iPad. <a href=http://mc2.co.za/rest.php?&#x30EB;&#x30A4;&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3;-&#x9577;&#x8CA1;&#x5E03;/>&#x30EB;&#x30A4;&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3; &#x9577;&#x8CA1;&#x5E03;</a> INTERNATIONAL Business Machines Corp is seeking a Chinese partner to launch public cloud computing services in the domestic market in a bid to improve its information technology services level, the Big Blue said yesterday.

US and European banks have now agreed to settlements with US regulators totaling some US$5 billion in recent years on charges they violated US sanctions and failed to police potentially illicit transactions. <a href=http://www.ren-fest.com/userfiles/admin.asp?&#x30CA;&#x30A4;&#x30AD;-&#x30A8;&#x30A2;&#x30DE;&#x30C3;&#x30AF;&#x30B9;90/>&#x30CA;&#x30A4;&#x30AD; &#x30A8;&#x30A2;&#x30DE;&#x30C3;&#x30AF;&#x30B9;90</a> Zhou said monetary policy easing would be needed to return China to a cyclical rebound in the rest of the year. <a href=http://www.prosol.ca/price.php?&#x30DB;&#x30EA;&#x30B9;&#x30BF;&#x30FC;-&#x901A;&#x8CA9;/>&#x30DB;&#x30EA;&#x30B9;&#x30BF;&#x30FC; &#x901A;&#x8CA9;</a> <a href=http://www.ren-fest.com/userfiles/ren.asp?&#x30B8;&#x30E7;&#x30FC;&#x30C0;&#x30F3;/>&#x30B8;&#x30E7;&#x30FC;&#x30C0;&#x30F3;</a> He said China welcomed the increase of International Monetary Fund resources and using the European Financial Stability Facility and the European Stability Mechanism to solve the crisis.
Asked whether Alibaba might buy the ailing US-based Internet company, Ma told an audience at Stanford University in California that he would be "very interested in Yahoo." <a href=http://www.saafis.com/save.php?&#x30B7;&#x30E3;&#x30CD;&#x30EB;-&#x30D0;&#x30C3;&#x30AF;/>&#x30B7;&#x30E3;&#x30CD;&#x30EB; &#x30D0;&#x30C3;&#x30AF;</a> The United States, which currently imports around 20 percent of its total energy needs, becomes all but self-sufficient, the IEA said. "That's a dramatic reversal of the trend seen in most other energy-importing countries." Ninety-five projects have misused allocated land for building commercial housing, hotels and office buildings, and more than one-third of the inspected projects had flaws in designing, construction and bidding procedures. US Senator Carl Levin, chair of a subcommittee that investigated the crisis, said the loss was "just the latest evidence that what banks call 'hedges' are often risky bets that so-called 'too big to fail' banks have no business making." <a href=http://www.woolentradenepal.com/data.php?&#x30EB;&#x30A4;&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3;-&#x30AD;&#x30FC;&#x30B1;&#x30FC;&#x30B9;/>&#x30EB;&#x30A4;&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3; &#x30AD;&#x30FC;&#x30B1;&#x30FC;&#x30B9;</a> The rally was also up 40.3 percent from February, in which passenger car sales increased 2.6 percent year on year, the slowest pace in more than two years.
US indexes were moving between small gains and losses before Fitch released its report around 3:15 p.m. The Dow was down just 36 points with an hour of trading left, then plunged to end the day down 190. <a href=http://www.vafree.com/uploads/test.php?&#x30B0;&#x30C3;&#x30C1;-&#x8CA1;&#x5E03;/>&#x30B0;&#x30C3;&#x30C1; &#x8CA1;&#x5E03;</a> The energy market is also sensitive to any unplanned outages at a major US refinery with gasoline supplies down about 8 percent from year-ago levels. Exxon Mobil Corp. reported a fire late Wednesday at its Baytown, Texas complex. On Thursday the company said there will be some impact on production, although it expects to "meet its contractual agreements." Although other leading indicators, such as real estate, exports and consumer sentiment, remained weak through July, the leading and current indicators point to a modest rebound in the second half of 2012, said Andrew Polk, resident economist at the Conference Board China Center in Beijing. A string of positive US economic news also propelled the market higher. An index measuring manufacturing in the Midwest surged to a seven-month high; private company hiring jumped in November to the highest level this year, according to payroll company ADP; and the number of contracts to buy homes jumped in October to the highest level in a year. <a href=http://mc2.co.za/rest.php?&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3;&#x8CA1;&#x5E03;&#x30AB;&#x30BF;&#x30ED;&#x30B0;/>&#x30F4;&#x30A3;&#x30C8;&#x30F3;&#x8CA1;&#x5E03;&#x30AB;&#x30BF;&#x30ED;&#x30B0;</a> Exporters should sharpen their competitiveness under such circumstances, or they can look to the domestic market for new opportunities, Zhao suggested.
