Pit History

As the NYPD bagpipers march down 5th avenue, lets take a look back at the history of police and animal cruelty. New York City was once the largest dog fighting area of North America. Just after the civil war dog fighting became very popular among the upper class as well as commoners. The blood sport was so popular with police officers that it was often covered in the police newsletter “Police Gazette”. The newsletter even went as far as creating rules for the bloodsport which are often used today. #tablesturn #vegan #govegan #animalliberation #fortheanimals #plantbased #nypd #policegazette #police #dogs #Americanstaffordshire #stpat #stpatricksday #saintpatricksday #nyc #newyorkcity #ny
