No.71 and the mafiosos who you'd think would
be out joyriding in their flashy cars

real impacts
trainers put dogs in isolation on strict
diets and even on drugs
before a fight they dope the pups up on
a steroid for bodybuilders
these dogs step into the ring looking

chopped tail
to keep fewer limbs from getting ripped
off meanwhile
the owners relaxing back at home can
watch the fights on what's pretty much a
mobster streaming service

in their 2020 report on zoo mafia they

like going to the cinema
or disco and in 2019 the same rights
group recorded a five to ten percent
rise in dogfighting complaints

what those 'A','B' would be
