Google-owned Android Marketplace currently has an app for sale called "Dog Wars," which, believe it or not, glamorizes dogfighting and encourages people to participate in a digital version of this blood "sport."

Who doesn't know by now that dogs used for fighting are kept penned or chained (often with heavy logging chains) and that many are taunted and starved in order to trigger extreme survival instincts and aggression?

Dogfighters train dogs by forcing them to tread water in pools; run on a treadmill while a caged rabbit, cat, or chicken or another terrified animal is dangled in front of them; or hang on with their jaws while dangling from a chain baited with meat. Many dogs are injected with steroids, and some dogfighters even sharpen their dogs' teeth, cut off their ears (to prevent another dog from latching on), and add roach
