PETA Up In Paws Over Development
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - IPO's the last few years have been somewhat disappointing, however, Cute Puppy Fights, a start-up out of The Prairie State seeks to buck the trend with a controversial public offering.
Dog Fighting Is Lucrative Business
Cute Puppy Fights (PUPY) goes public with a target share price of $16 early next week. The highly controversial IPO has been met with its fair share of resistance.
"This is ludicrous," said Pam Sealy, an executive at People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). "How this kind of company can exist in this day and age is beyond me."
PETA announced a complaint filed in circuit court earlier in the week seeking an injunction against Cute Puppy Fights. However, not everyone is against the idea of adorable puppies tearing one another limb from limb in a specially designed cage called The Hexagon.

"I think it's great," said Reggie Bark, spokesperson for the North American Association of Professional Dog Fighters (NAAPDF). "After serving four years in a federal prison, I'm happy to see my sport go mainstream. I see coverage on ESPN in the future."
TrendSmasher reached out to convicted Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff at the Federal Correctional Institution Butner Medium in North Carolina for his take on the subject. "There's nothing wrong with it," Madoff said. "Then again, I don't think there's anything wrong with anything, for the record."
Nelson D. Furripper, CEO of Cute Puppy Fights took offense to the complaint filed by PETA. "These people have no conscience. We're just trying to make money for our potential shareholders and investors by providing a service that consumers want. Our conservative projections indicate that we're going to do at least four billion in revenue during our first full year of operation."
Michael Vick could not be reached for comment.
Petsmart and Petco Speak Out
Michael Massey CEO of PetSmart was not too pleased with the IPO getting a green light.
"These people should be arrested immediately," said Massey. "The world doesn't need televised puppy fights. It's disgusting and immoral. Only human beings should be able to smash each other to pieces for our entertainment."
"This stupid company [Cute Puppy Fights] approached our marketing division looking for a sponsorship deal," said incoming CEO of Petco, Brad Weston. "They should be ashamed."
