The majority of these pittbull puppies have been bred to suffer abuse, starvation and then an ultimate death by another pittbull. Not only does the St Maarten government turn a blind eye to animal abuse and illegal fights, an idiot named Roland Duncan, who just happened to be St Maarten's 1st Minister of Justice ENCOURAGED animal abuse, saying that it was a part of our culture. Animal cruelty is NOT a part of our cutlure and should be stopped. There are many so called "animal lovers" in St Maarten who talk a good game, but would NEVER do anything about the problem. There are good vets in St Maarten, but many are profit motivated butchers who base saving an animals life on the owners income.
