Dr. Phil Confronts Animal Abusers
Every 10 seconds an animal is abused in this country. By the time this show is over, nearly 240 animals will be tortured. Dr. Phil, a huge animal lover, is taking a stand. First up, Rob says dog fighting is not a crime, and believes that it’s no different than boxing or football. He was convicted of a felony after authorities caught him in the act and says he wants to clear up the misconceptions about dog fighting. Will Rob get a wake-up call about this brutal "sport"? Then, they may look like a group of tattooed tough guys, but cast members from the TV show Rescue Ink say they’re on a mission to save animals in danger. Take a look as they go inside a dog fighting yard to demonstrate how they gather evidence for a bust. Plus, New Yorkers were outraged by surveillance video that captured Chris Grant terrorizing his girlfriend’s Pomeranian on an elevator. Learn how Chris’ father reacts to his behavior. Viewer discretion is advised.
I usually can't stand the pompous windbag, but I'll be watching this episode.
