Will Vick play in the NFL again? As much as it might disgust him, Frank R. Ascione understands what draws people to blood sports like dog fights, where the crowd cheers dogs tearing into each others' faces and necks, spraying sand pits with blood.
"Obviously there's one element of the excitment of a fight to the death that people are sometimes attracted to," says Ascione, a professor of psychology at Utah State University and the author of several books on animal cruelty. "But then when you look at the people who go to a dog fight, you have other people motivated by other things. Some are there for the gambling, others who want to see the blood, others who are looking to make a drug deal, others trying to build a reputation."
