reports are saying that 127 dogs were taken and the evidence seems to be pretty crap (scarred up dogs and "paraphenalia"). dogs will supposedly be held alive until the trial. HSUS will shit the bed again.

maybe not. ed said in an interview that he told the undercovers he sold dogs to that they were good for fighting when they asked. he also said he did it because he needed the money. he just signed the death cert for all those dogs. stupid ass. they really do need to get the HSUS off of shit like this, they are ridiculous.

Fighting yourself = illegal.

Selling dogs to dogfighters = legal.

wrong. well what he did was illegal. it is illegal to own dogs intended for fighting and knowingly provide dogs for fighting in NC. either way he is a douche for putting his dogs at risk like that.

Ed pleaded GUILTY to 14 counts of dogfighting this week. He sealed his dogs' fate when he broke the law. All the dogs are going to be euthanized. Congrats HSUS, way to really help out those animals...

I'm not sure whats worse, being euthed or going to those assholes at Best Friends.

Wilkes begins to put down pitbulls seized from breeder

By Monte Mitchell | Journal Reporter

Published: February 17, 2009

WILKESBORO

Wilkes County Animal Control began this morning to euthanize more than 127 pit bulls associated with Wildside Kennels, an operation that bred fighting dogs, according to county officials. The county was carrying out a judge's order from Monday.

The dogs were seized Dec. 10, 2008, in a raid on the kennel and had been held as evidence in a case against kennel owner Ed Faron and two associates. Faron was sentenced last Thursday to 8 to 10 months in prison for 14 felony counts of dog fighting. The last of the three defendants was sentenced Monday and the dogs were ordered destroyed.
According to the judge's ruling, state law defines dogs as dangerous if they are involved in a dog fighting operation and a county ordinance requires that dangerous dogs be destroyed.

The dogs should all be euthanized by the end of today, county officials said. The exact number of dogs is still unclear because several litters of puppies had been born since the raid.

The raid was the result of a 3-year investigation by The Humane Society of the U.S., in cooperation with Wilkes County Animal Control and the Wilkes County Sheriff's Office.

he even makes sure to get the last word and isnt it funny how he's calling someone else out for "clamoring for media attention" lol.

the worst part is not the dogs, its Ed Faron sitting in prison and losing his life, when he is not a dog fighter, a puppy peddler, maybe, but not a dog fighter.

---------------------------------------

John Goodwin, manager of animal fighting issues for HSUS, said, "I saw these dogs, and in fact handled many of them while they were being evaluated. These dogs would most certainly kill any other dog they could get to.
"It is very sad that people are also missing the bigger story, that our work has shut down one of the top breeders of fighting dogs in the United States. Dogfighters are seeing their heros go to prison. This is having an effect, and many dogfighters are leaving that world behind as they recognize the cost of doing business is too great. HSUS is the only organization in the United States that has an entire campaign that works full time on animal fighting issues.
"I support pit bull rescue, but there has to be a group that goes farther and hits at the root of the problem. That is what we are doing by putting leaders in the dogfighting criminal underworld out of business.
"Lastly, Wilkes County euthanizes 3,000 healthy, adoptable animals a year simply because there are not enough good homes opening their doors to these needy animals. I find it disturbing that the groups clamoring for media attention over these 127 dogs raise no fuss, and offer no assistance, for the other 3,000 dogs put down in that county each year."

i heard that the 14 counts came about because he had 14 dogs with "scars consistent with fighting". I still dont get why he plead guilty, theres gotta be more to the story.

if you can get 9mo for pleading guilty but if you fight it and are convicted you get 40+yrs, then maybe his best shot was pleading guilty,especially the way things are going. The rest of his life would have been spent behind bars for breeding dogs with scars on them. It wasnt worth the fight, he would have lost

he had dogs with scars but these dogs get lose and fight, making scars and he also had dogs that were matched but not by him that he had bought or were returned to him.


pleading guilty was the only logical choice
