PETA Files readers know that we adore Ellen and Oprah for their endless efforts to help animals. Today we’re throwing some love—and sending our thanks—to another daytime talk-show host, Dr. Phil, who earlier this week turned his viewers’ attention from cheating spouses to the seedy world of dogfighting.
When he confronted a dogfighter during the show, Dr. Phil didn’t mince words: “I think dogfighting is wrong. I think it is despicable. I think it is sick. I think it is disgusting.” The good doctor also blogged about the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on the sale of porn for pup torturers, declaring, “I was sick to my stomach.”
We’d also like to point out that Dr. Phil’s other guest, Paris Hilton, whom we’ve taken to task in the past for her own bad behavior, chimed in: “I kind of want to punch [the dogfighter] in the face.”
After you thank Dr. Phil for taking on dogfighters, tell us what you think should be done to stop them?
