Tyronne Wheatley's glorification of the world of pit bull fighting is appalling (Sittin' Pretty, Jan. 15). I hope your readers recognize the significant difference between football and one of the crudest activities that people can inflict on animals. Football players make the choice to play football. Dogs placed in the ring to fight are there not by choice but at the pleasure of humans who derive enjoyment and gain from the suffering that results.
