Over the weekend they announced that they had to lay precious Percy to rest.  A spokesperson stated, His soul was simply too perfect and too pure for this world. His doctors called during his procedure with news we were not hoping to hear. His entire lower jaw would need to be removed which means a feeding tube for life, not able to drink water, play with toys, etc."

The Jersey Pit Rescue, Tinton Falls, which is 60 miles from Gloucester City bases their suspicions on the discovery of two pit bulls that were found recently with similar severe injuries, including infected bite wounds and broken bones.

The week before Thanksgiving, a good Samaritan found an injured pit bull, later named Peaches, in the Vineland area. She was found along with a dead dog and another that wasn’t injured as badly but had several bite wounds.

Peaches, believed to be around 8 years old, was taken to South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter in Vineland, which contacted Jersey Pits Rescue for help. Presently she is living in a foster home.

Former Gov. Chris Christie made it a criminal offense in 2015 when he signed a bill adding it to a list of crimes that can be prosecuted under the state’s anti-racketeering law. Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation in Mayoutlawing trunk fighting, in which dogs are locked in a vehicle and provoked into fighting to the death. (full story)
