Couer d’Alene Facebook Post Looks for Pitbulls for Fighting League
A "Swap n' Shop" Facebook page is designed for neighbors to trade goods and services. This Couer d’Alene man didn't get the memo that it isn't to be used for dog fighting.
The man recently posted on the page he was looking to purchase Pitbulls to use in an underground dog fighting league:
I'm looking to buy a few pitbulls. Does anybody have any they wanna sell or get rid of? It's for a chomper league. I need 2 bait and at least 2 fighters. Thanks in advance. I can pay 500 each.
Shortly after the post went up, numerous members of the page contacted the police. The man then commented on said post that he was "just joking" and was actually looking for hunting dogs. It should be known that dog fighting is a felony in Idaho, and the case has now been turned over to animal control.
The Coeur d’Alene Police Department is encouraging citizens to report any crimes they encounter on Facebook.
