Sign: Stop Bronx Dogfighting Operation That Is Using Cats As Live Bait

Published: May 01, 2024 at 06:59 PM Author: PENNY EIMS

Bronx, NY – A horrifying situation is taking place in public housing in the Bronx, and the local authorities are apparently turning a blind eye to it. According to local sources, an illegal dogfighting ring, involving using live cats as “bait” to train fighting dogs to kill, has been operating in the Gun Hill and Parkland housing projects for “years and years.”

The Little Wanderers NYC non-profit cat rescue organization has been trying to draw attention to the terrible situation, but their efforts have been frustratingly fruitless. The group expressed their growing frustration with the criminal activity in a public social media post in mid-April, writing:

We have discovered a cesspool of serious issues that demand urgent attention. This has been going on for years at this location. NYCHA residents have reported the attacks to the local 47th Street Precinct and there has been NO INVESTIGATION.

Warning: Gruesome video footage reveals the horror of what is happening. In video posted to Facebook, a tan pit bull can be seen viciously attacking a helpless black and white cat who fights valiantly to survive. A man can be heard encouraging the dog…repeatedly telling her to “shake it up,” and “good girl, shake it Chyna, shake it,” as the cat pitifully cries in agony.

This abhorrent cruelty has been going on for years, and nobody is stopping these criminals from continuing to capture cats and use them as bait for their dogs. In a Facebook post, Little Wanderers NYC writes:

There are videos all their own social media(!!) training their animals to attack and kill friendly cats and laughing about it. Many types of dogs are beaten and abused and trained to attack people and other animals. Bronx NYCHA residents are scared to come forward. How is this possible?

In another video, a man can be seen grabbing a kitten in the hallway of an apartment building and shoving the fragile baby into a bag before walking away.

Innocent cats are being caught and fed alive to dogs who are being trained to engage in horrific dog fights. The entire situation is stomach churning, yet nobody of authority seems to care.

If you are appalled by this barbaric, criminal activity, please add your name to the petition today! Together we will put pressure on the local authorities and demand that they bring this violence to an end!

Target: Commanding Officer 47th Precinct and New York City Housing Authority

Call: 718-920-1211 47th Precinct
Commanding Officer 47th Precinct
Call: 718-276-3319 Detective Ashby
47th Precinct Email Animal Cruelty Unit

We the undersigned demand that the 47th Precinct do their job and conduct a full investigation. These people are ruthless, and they must be stopped. This petition acts as our collective endorsement for these individuals to face true consequences for their actions.  Dogfighting is a despicable activity that has no place in our society and these people must be held accountable for the harm and suffering they inflict on innocent dogs who are forced to partake in their “business,” and the innocent cats who are being sacrificed to support their abhorrent blood sport. 

Individuals are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.

Update 5/22/2024: WARNING: The complaint is disturbing. Wallace Complaint_05092024141834 signed

Update 5/19/2024: Sent petition to NYPD 47th Precinct.

Update 5/9/2024: The man encouraging his pit bull to viciously rip apart a cat has been identified, and of little surprise, he not only has a lengthy criminal history, but he is facing recent charges for animal torture. On April 17, NYPD Animal Cruelty Squad arrested 29-year-old Terrance Wallace for abusing the dog seen in the cat-killing video. According to the New York Post, Wallace beat his dog with a leash and nearly choked her to death. He is facing a charge of animal torture and has 20 prior arrests/charges on his rap sheet, including charges for drugs and robbery. Wallace has NOT been charged in the cat-killing incident, but the April 17 incident shows his disregard for life and sadistic penchant for cruelty. Animal Victory is continuing to fight for charges in the cat-killing situation and we are working hard to shut down the dog fighting operation!
