Best Friend's NetworkIT’S NOT COOL TO BE CRUEL!

To: America’s major sports leagues


Several weeks ago, law enforcement officials uncovered evidence of a dog fighting operation on property owned by Michael Vick, quarterback for the National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons. The investigation continues.

It appears that the violent subculture of dog fighting has permeated the world of professional sports and entertainment. Dog fighting is horrifically cruel for the dogs, but also a dangerous, illegal activity that often involves violence, weapons, illegal gambling and drugs.

We, the undersigned, urge America’s major sports leagues—the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and Major League Soccer to take immediate action to help stop participation and support of dog fighting by taking the following actions:

  • Announce policies condemning dog fighting as a horrifically cruel, illegal activity that will not be tolerated
  • Establish stiff penalties, including fines and suspensions, for any high profile athletes or league employee who associates in any way with dog fighting
  • Cooperate fully with investigations of athletes alleged to be involved in dog fighting
  • Cooperate with Best Friends and other animal welfare groups to promote ways to eradicate dog fighting
