New Hotline Aims to Quell Dog Fighting in Florida

December 29th, 2008 by flanews

Florida’s Attorney General is asking the public for help to bust dog fighting rings. A hotline has been set up for people who see or suspect dog fighting in their neighborhoods.

Callers whose tips lead to the arrest and conviction of dog fighters will be eligible for a 5,000 dollar reward. The AG’s Director of Law Enforcement Relations Emery Gainey said callers don’t have to give their names.

“This is set up very similar to crime stoppers that it would maintain your anonymity by calling it in, and again if leads to the arrest and conviction you can be eligible for up to 5,000 dollars. We think this is going to be a great incentive,” said Gainey.

The hotline is operated by the Humane Society of the United States and is located in Washington D.C. To report dog fighting call 1-877-TIP-HSUS that’s 1-877-847-4784.
