Target : Anne Colt Leitess, State’s Attorney for Anne Arundel County, Maryland
Goal : Prosecute man who allegedly harmed puppy and pit bull in dog fighting crime.
A Maryland man allegedly directed a horrific social media video centered on dog fighting. A subsequent undercover sting led to charges of aggravated animal cruelty and animal cruelty involving dog fighting for Kyle Murray. This man, if found guilty, should face maximum punishment for exploiting at least two innocent dogs.
The shocking video depicted a pit bull attacking a small, defenseless puppy. Murray reportedly used the tiny animal to ‘train’ the pit bull in dog fighting techniques. Although the larger animal was rescued from Murray’s residence upon his arrest, authorities unfortunately do not know the whereabouts of the puppy. This poor victim was likely severely injured or even killed, but he or she was not the only victim. Murray’s pit bull probably endured the harsh, abusive tactics utilized by humans to ‘break’ and ‘groom’ fighters. Since the undercover operation involved setting up a potential dog fight, this animal could have been condemned to a tragic end as well.
Sign the petition below to make sure prosecutors take the strongest possible stand against dog fighting and all its cruelties.
Dear Ms. Colt Leitess,
Dog fighting is considered such a uniquely horrific crime against another living being that it merits its own classification of animal cruelty. Kyle Murray allegedly committed this egregious offense and recorded it for the world to see. One of his alleged victims was rescued from his home. Another may never be found.
The video depicting the savage attack of a puppy by Murray’s pit bull, at Murray’s alleged command, says a great deal about this defendant. Please use this sickening evidence to seek a fitting penalty. Make an irrefutable condemnation of dog fighting and its atrocities for the world to see.
