Almost a month ago police rescued about 300 pit bulls from an online dogfighting racket. The dogs were kept on a farm in San Pablo, Laguna, chained to rusty drums that served as their only shelter from the elements. (Imagine how hot it gets inside a steel drum in high summer. They didn’t have water, and their heavy chains wouldn’t let them.) Many of them were badly injured from being made to fight each other to the death for the entertainment of spectators watching in other countries. These were the survivors.
