Dog Fighting League faces uncertain future

Even the most savage combatants in the Dog Fighting League face the constant risk
of injury.

By John Breneman

The Pittsburgh Pit Bulls mauled the Philadelphia Beagles 14-3 last night in a vicious DFL showdown that has drawn the attention of animal-rights watchdogs, FBI bloodhounds and rabid fans.

In other Dog Fighting League action: The Cleveland Curs dominated the Baltimore Bitches, the Oakland Rottweilers abused the underdog New Orleans Saint Bernards and the heavily favored Chicago Bullmastiffs were savaged by the Kansas City Chihuahuas.

The indictment of the league's poster boy, NFL superstar Michael Vick, has shined a harsh spotlight on the underground world of extreme canine brutality. But DFL analysts suggest investigators instead probe an organization that grooms chemically enhanced human beings to engage in violent combat for entertainment purposes -- the National Football League.

In tonight's DFL matchups: The Miami Mongrels attack the Jacksonville Jugulars, the Green Bay Puggers take on the Fighting Irish Setters of Notre Dame and the Miami Mongrels are crated up and shipped to Motown where they hope to disembowel the Detroit Dachshunds, despite a hamstring injury to league MVP (Most Valuable Pooch) Killer #247.

At stake is the saliva-covered league championship trophy and a lavish prize package that includes a 10-pound sack of Alpo and one full week without being beaten, shot or electrocuted.
