Tonight at 10pm EST tune in to the first of a series of special reports on the culture of dogfighting with what is described as “…the true and uncensored reality behind dog fighting, we intend to raise public awareness about this cruel and inhumane practice,” according to Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager at Animal Planet.

Animal Planet Investigates: Dog Fighting Exposed” has exclusive  footage of this travesty with commentary from former dog fighters and law enforcement.  It’s  hard to watch this, I know. You’re talking to somebody who had to watch “Death on a Factory Farm” in installments!  But the act of witnessing is vital to change. Once you see, it is hard to just look the other way.  A woman dog fighter(yep, you heard me right) gives her take on the mindset of the culture.

Hat tip to our friend John Woestendiek at Ohmidog! where you can read on.
