From My Friends at the ASPCA : Be Aware

Warning: This will enrage you. Two dogs are thrown in the trunk of a car. The suspects drive around with music blasting to drown out the sounds of fighting. This continues until the movement stops and one of the dogs is dead.

It’s called trunking—and it’s on the rise.

“It’s barbaric,” says ASPCA Animal Fighting Specialist Terry Mills. “It’s dark. It’s cramped. The dogs are fighting for their lives. With the music blasting, no one suspects a thing.”

As with any other illegal underground activity, it is impossible to determine how many people are involved in trunking and dog fighting—but estimates suggest that the number is in the tens of thousands.

  1. Yes, I was very upset when I read this and another article which I couldn’t post as it was very, very disturbing. I only posted the above article as a tool for other readers and animal lovers such as myself to be aware of this horrific activity. I never would think twice if I saw a group of people around a car with the music blaring. It’s so sad to think that others find sport in this sadistic behavior.

  2. I can’t say I like this post, because it is shocking and very sad.. I never heard of such a thing but am sure that it exists.. I hope that if anyone is found to be carrying this out that they will earn a long prison term and not a slap on the wrist, as it were.
