Animal fighting rages on

Dogs, roosters, and even camels fighting. Around the world, people still organize animal fights for betting or entertainment.

For the purpose of human entertainment, wagering, or sport

Dog fighting

Meanwhile in Brazil, the police have dismantled an international dog fighting ring. 19 pitbulls, some of them in serious condition, were rescued. 40 people were arrested on this property. They come from several countries in which dogs are used for fighting. Others compete in this arena where people from all over the world place illegal online bets. According to Associated Press, there is a “macabre ritual” of serving barbecued dog meat to the spectators during the fight. The suspects have all been released on bail.

Cockfighting

While cockfighting is now illegal all over the world, in some countries it is still tolerated in the name of tradition: In some French regions such as the Hauts-de-France or Reunion Island, in the Dominican Republic, in Madagascar, cockfighting in Madagascar, is stuck between tradition and excess or in Southeast Asian countries such as here in the Philippines. Cockfighting consists of placing two roosters in a ring, whose spurs are often cut off and replaced by a blade. These animals, which have a fairly natural tendency to fight, are trained for combat and fed like sportsmen for several months before fight. The fights usually last 5 minutes and stop when one of the two roosters die or is knocked out. Bets are placed on the winner. In some countries, cockfighting is a business in its own right: in Puerto Rico, it allegedly represents between 11,000 and 27,000 direct jobs. Congress has passed a bill to ban this practice on this island, which will be effective by the end of the year.

Camel fighting in Turkey

Tekdemir is one of thousands of people who come to watch a camel fighting in Turkey. A very popular show during the winter. The fights only last a few minutes and there is no money at stake. The winner is the camel that manages to knock the other one down or make it run away. According to the camel riders, this ancestral practice, which is also found in Pakistan, is not dangerous for the animals. Camels are always males during breeding season and are presented as trophies by their owners. They are specifically selected, bred and trained for these fights. Animal welfare associations in Turkey believe this practice should be prohibited. Between December 2018 and March 2019, 90 fights were organized in the western part of the country.

    Animal fighting is abuse no matter what kind of animal it is. People are sick in the head if they get any enjoyment out of watching anything get hurt. This just disgusts me. Animals rely on humans for their welfare. Some humans need to get a life!

    I disagree with dog fighting myself. Never was around it and look at dogs like pets. Gamefowl I been around all of my life. It's nothing to do with money or blood. It's not just throwing two roosters in a pit. Its everything to do with a culture. A sport that is your life. Means everything to you. These are not egg chickens and are not eating chickens. They are game fowl that are bread for sport. Different bloodlines have different characteristics. They are cared for better than most people care for their children. Its pride. Proud of what breed you made up. Crossed them to create the fowl that suits you and your hard work. Winning makes you proud of yourself and your fowl. So one hen lays around 50 eggs a season. How do you suppose we harvest gamefowl? Eat them? Or be over run by them, I have a wonderful family of four children and a wife. I build houses for a living. I dont drink. Dont do any kind of drugs and give the shirt off my back to help anyone in need. Iv saved so many animals lives. Took on bottle feeding 7 hound pups at 3 days old so they wouldn't die. Cockers are some of the best most honest people you can meet. Its their culture and a deep deep love for the fowl and sport.
