Game Developer Creates Dog Fighting App

By Leighangela Published: April 24, 2011

Google's android.com is allowing a game called Dog Wars to remain available for download. The game was created by Kage Games, LLC and is causing outrage among animal lovers, who are demanding that Google take down the game. According to Google's Android Market policies, "Android Market should not be used for unlawful purposes or for promotion of dangerous and illegal activities."

The dog in the game's logo is a cartoon Pit Bull with yellow eyes, a studded collar, cropped ears, and apparently a blood-covered muzzle. In the game, the controller trains a Pit Bull to fight and wins "virtual cash" by fighting other players' dogs. The controller also has a gun for police raids and can inject the dog with steroids.

Search tags included by the developer include "train to dogfight," "juice your dog," "buy weapons," "aggression," "bite" and "puppy."

On Saturday, dog lovers responded with an Anti-Dog Wars Facebook page and a petition asking Google to block the app reached 5,000 signatures in one day.

Those who disagree with the game should sign the petition and lodge a complaint with android's market team.
