2. The "filmmaker's" heart does seem to be in the right place BUT he really has absolutely no knowledge of dog training, development, behavior and breeding (things that someone who is undertaking a documentary about dogs should have at least a passing unerstanding of); thus the information he presents is simplistic and not always accurate. He doesn't make good use of the interviews with professionals and spends way too much time interviewing idiots.
3. The filmmaker alludes to the APBT being a loyal, loveable family member; capable of succeeding in a number of activites. However does he interview and depict any of the thousands of pit bull owners titling their dogs in obedience, agility & weight pull? No. Does he show any of the pit bulls that work daily in search and rescue and as therapy dogs? No. Does he show pits cuddling on the couch with their families? No. He shows what seem to be his dogs, kept outside, on chains, looking completely untrained and quite frankly neglected. He makes a big deal about taking one of his dogs "off the chain"...he then proceeds to let it drag him around the yard on a leash...WTF...anyone ever heard of "heeling" as in actually taking the time to train your dogs? I thought I would be treated to his dogs doing an obedience run through: sit, down, roll over, shake...whatever. NOPE. I did get to see a game of tug of war with an old towel that seemed to be trying to play up the dog's "tough image". When I play tug of war with my pit bull she sits for the toy to be presented and waits for the "take it" command. She also "outs" on command when the game is over.Read more ›
Amazon.com's persistence is all the more disturbing because it comes after Congress passed legislation making it a FELONY offense to ship publications containing "commercial speech" for the purpose of promoting or "in any other manner furthering" animal fighting.
Amazon.com's refusal to acknowledge this is perplexing, as it most certainly is aware of the illegality of certain materials. In 2005 and again in 2007, Amazon.com removed a dogfighting video from its website, in recognition of a federal law that prohibits profiting from depictions of animal cruelty. Amazon.com has pulled Nazi propaganda from its website based solely on its offensiveness.
This should not be sold.
As long time customers we are going to have to boycott Amazon if you do not address the issues of what you sell encouring animal fighting, ie dogs and cocks. You do know these activities are FELONIES, don't you! You do know it represents servious breaking down of respect to living creatures. We need to DO ALL WE CAN AS A SOCIETY TO STOP ANIMAL FIGHTING. Would you take your child to a dog fight and place a bet? Would you stick around to see how the "loser" is dealt with....KILLED. Get them out of your inventory.....it is disgusting.
