SIKESTON, Mo. - Dogfighting has been in the news a lot the past few days, especially with the indictment of Atlanta Falcons Quaterback Michael Vick.
The indictment accuses Vick and three co-defendants of sponsoring a brutal dogfighting operation on property owned by Vick in Richmond, Virginia in which some dogs fought to the death. The indictment also claims the losing dogs were sometimes killed by hanging, shooting, drowning or electrocution.
In Illinois, anyone in possession of dogfighting items are subject to arrest.
