DOGFIGHTING: Rescued dogs are seen inside a Cook County animal control vehicle following a raid at a residence in South Holland, Ill., in July 2007 Cook County Sheriff's police and South Holland police raided an alleged dog fighting breeding facility in a barn, removing dozens of dogs. Dogfighting, where dogs are made to and bred for fighting to the death in a ring, is an illegal, underground form of entertainment and gambling. Football player Michael Vick had a dog fighting operation on his property, for which he served a 23-month federal jail sentence.
