Tell Google to remove the KG Dogfighting application from its marketplace.
Google has refused to take down the controversial dog fighting video game, KG Dogfighting, from its application marketplace.
KG Dogfighting is a game users can download onto their phones that allows them to be a virtual player in a dog fighting ring. Players train their dogs and pit them against those of other players.
Dog fighting is illegal in all 50 states because it carries serious consequences for the dogs involved. The dogs must fight each other until one is either too injured to continue or, worse, dies. If the dogs are injured and unable to continue fighting, they are often used as bait to capture and rile up other potential dogs for fighting.
Dog fighting is also extremely detrimental to society as statistics have shown that people who abuse animals are also more likely to harm a human being.
Please sign the petition imploring Google to remove this reprehensible game from their application marketplace.
Dear Mr. Page, CEO:
The KG Dogfighting game currently offered in your application marketplace is morally despicable. The game allows players to train and fight their dogs against other players'. Dog fighting is illegal in all 50 states, yet you are peddling a game that supports this abhorrent "sport."
Dog fighting leaves countless dogs injured or dead. They are forced fight to the death when in the rings. Those who don't die in the fights are often used to bait and train other dogs. Virtually no dog involved stands a chance for survival.
Dog fighting doesn't just affect the dogs either — it also has grave consequences for society. Statistics have shown that abuse against animals is also often connected to human abuse as well.
We can't stop dog fighting single-handedly but we can take steps toward reducing its occurrence. Supporting a game that encourages this deadly sport surely doesn't help.
While the app may not directly violate the terms of your marketplace, it contradicts your company's celebrated motto: "Don't be evil."
Please discontinue KG Dogfighting and speak out against this savage sport.
Thank you for your time.
