Anti-Dogfighting Campaign LogoAttorney Fred Kray, cohost Kris Diaz, and the rest of the PBLNR crew welcome Patricia Miles, President & CEO of the "Anti-DogFighting Campaign." The Anti-DogFighting Campaign comprises advocates and investigators who combate dogfighting worldwide.

Ms. Miles talks about how she began her campaign against dogfighting in Michigan, the difficulties of getting local officials to deal with dogfighting, and dogfighting hotspots in the U.S. and around the world.

How do you know if someone is fighting dogs? Treadmills, flirt poles, break sticks, and multiple dogs aren't enough—you should look at the totality of the situation. What do you do if you suspect that someone in your community is fighting dogs? Go to local law enforcement—if you don't feel comfortable doing so, or haven't seen any results, contact the HSUS or the Anti-DogFighting campaign (they will pass information along but keep your identity secret). And if you see any evidence of dogfighting on Facebook, don't report it to Facebook, but to her organization! Learn more:  The Anti-Dogfighting Campaign blogThe Anti-Dogfighting Campaign on Facebook

Rebecca Corry stops by to let us know that she's finally recovered from the Million PIbble March and will be continuing her Stand Up for Pits events.

And Yvette Van Veen addresses what may be Worst. Dog-Safety Advice. Ever. She also offers a much better response to the question of what children should do when they encounter a loose dog.
