Google Glorifies Dog Fighting!

I would like to thank everyone for their well wishes after the loss of my beloved friend.  I am currently working on a post to show my appreciation.
In the meantime an urgent matter has come to my attention.  A matter which requires your assistance if it is to be resolved at all...
The bloody muzzle and cold, calculating eyes of a pit bull stare out from the website for newly released Google Android app "Dog Wars" -- a game that trains people in dog fighting, a murderous sport connected not just with cruelty to animals but also in some cases to drugs, guns and murder.
"Feed, water, train and fight your virtual dog against other players," trumpets the game, which encourages users to "raise your dog to beat the best!"Players are also equipped with a gun for police raids.

Google pulled the application, only to change the name which was in violation of copyright material.  It is now called "KG Dogfighting.
Dog fighting is a felony in all fifty states of the union.

Please let google know this will not be tolerated!

Your voice matters!!!!!!

  1. Thank you for posting the link, and I did register my complaint. Saw this on TV the other day, and remember the case with Michael Vick, and I literally had to change the channel due to the news coverage content. Animal cruelty is beyond description.

  2. Oh Ms. D. Just you against the World. I just posted on that site. I wish I could get these people and make them fight till the death for food and water, it would be not a good enough punishment for there cruel acts. The Lord says we should not hate- But I came close to hate when it comes to animal abuse. I love you and have missed you and thanks for this effort. Your friends, Sissy Dog and Richard

  3. We are a stupid, degraded society. But what do we expect after Grand Theft Auto, where you get points for boosting cars, killing cops and having sex with prostitutes.

    We are a sad, sick people...

  5. Welcome back...I'm sorry it had to be with such an awful post topic. My mind can't even wrap around the fact that people are cruel to animals. I am just disgusted by the low-lifes who raise dogs to fight. I'm going to the link right now. Thanks for this...~Ann

  6. I'm so happy you're back Andie! I just wish it was under better circumstances then dog fighting games. I don't understand adults or anybody designing something like this, what's the point? To teach people yet more violence? I'm off to this link and to hug my Dylan, no dog be it game or not deserves bad treatment.

  9. Hi Andie!
    I just went and posted. Thanks for adding the link as I am sure it would have taken me hours to find it. These people are sick and twisted. What is Google thinking?

    Glad you are back.
    We have all missed you.
    :)

  10. Horrible horrible makes me want to vomit!
    Oh man this next to child abuse has to be the worst. Mental people that is all i can say.
    It scares me to think that children will be playing or witnessing this game. Or the people that play it have children.
    Animal cruelty laws are not strong enough.

    I hope you are fairing well ...

  12. dear Andie,
    hope everything is ok. i know this dog game. thanks God it's not popular in any way in my country. In fact the police found a very small group that did this and just finished it off. This is not something people like to do around here! Thanks God there's something good about this portuguese society! this political corruption and decay situation are bad enough. I found this game revolting! and it's extremely popular in latin american countries specially among gang groups! Sick people!
    have a happy day,
    Rosa

  13. absolutely disgusting. when i was in grad school in virginia, i would see high school kids walking litters of pit bull puppies on chains. had no idea that dog fighting culture was so endemic to certain southern culture. thank you for letting us (me) know about this ridiculous app.

  14. I'm glad you're back Andie. Unfortunately, the many years I worked at the DA's Office I saw too many files involving animal cruelty such as Dog and Cock Fighting... which has been a big problem in our State, some of the high profile celeb arrests made National News in fact. I agree, these types of crimes are often linked so so much more and should not be tolerated, shame shame on Google and any Retailer that offers such a "game" (and I use that term loosely) glorifying such a sordid practice.

    It's in the Daily Mail.

  21. Hi Andie,

    I have been thinking of you. I hope you are doing better.

    This topic just makes me so sick and sad.

    I can't remember where you live, but there is a gal by the name Liz with http://www.makingadifferencerescue.com I have never met her, but have emailed and talked on the phone a couple of times. She has a big passion dealing with dog fighting and rescuing animals. She is a sweetie. SLiz lives in Channahon, is that near you?
    Look forward to seeing you back to blogging. Big hugs. xo

  23. it's all been said above cruelty shouldn't be tolerated in any form. what is the world coming to? they have a gangster one as well called Mafia wars. And you can tell me it has no effect. Even if it only desensitises people to seeing violence it's having a negative effect it's all shocking and although I have voiced my complaint (I expect nothing will be done) we are in the minority. However I have three blogs and an email address with google if we all threaten to give up these things for other suppliers I think they would change their tune. But a lone crusader can't do much.
