(BOISE, ID) – At least one of approximately 60 dogs taken from a murder scene near Malad last month has been adopted. The Humane Society of Idaho says Kyle and Janet Moore adopted a “friendly natured” female pit bull they call “Tess.” At least 12 of the dogs, which were used in an illegal dog fighting ring, had to be euthanized. Officials say another dozen dogs have gone to other rescue organizations.

    Gee, has the neighborhood been alerted that an animal-aggressive pit bull is now living on the block? One that’s fresh from a lifetime of being chained? This dog stands a very high chance of escaping its owners property within a few weeks. What then?

    This is so wrong, so dangerous. What type of person would want one of these dogs, and for what reason? So much effort, money and fanfare placing fight bust dogs, and dogs that have attacked and killed, yet a million surplus anonymous pit bulls get euthanized in the pounds yearly. Geez, I certainly hope they get spayed and neutered.

    I guess you could say the same about criminals…only the dogs had no choice.
