Controversy around violent video games is nothing new, but now a shocking cell phone game exists that marries animal cruelty with video game violence. KG Dogfighting is a game that allows the player to virtually train dogs to fight against other players’ dogs. Despite the cruel nature of the game, Google refuses to remove it from its cell phone application marketplace.
Dog fighting is illegal in all 50 states because of the cruel nature of this “sport” in which dogs must fight until they are too injured to continue, or until one of the dogs dies. Injured dogs are often used as bait to excite other fighting dogs. To make matters worse, statistics show that people who abuse animals are exponentially more likely to harm human beings. This behavior shouldn’t be encouraged–even in game form. Tell Google to remove this game from their marketplace.
Hopefully once this is banned, the game for ipone and android will follow!
