❥ Fight with dogs and pit bulls ❥
Dogfights are sadistic “contests” in which two dogs of specific breeds, conditioned, and trained to fight are placed in a central space (usually small and sandy enclosed by metal walls) to fight against each other, to for viewers to gamble and be entertained.
Fights last an average of almost an hour and often more than two hours.
The fighting ends when one of the dogs is neither willing nor able to continue fighting.
The wounds inflicted and received by dogs that take part in the fighting are often severe, and can be fatal. The pit bull terriers used in most of these fights have been specifically bred and trained to fight and are relentless in their attempts to defeat their adversaries. With very powerful jaws, they are capable of inflicting severe wounds, deep wounds, perforations, and broken bones.
Dogs used in these events often die from blood loss, dehydration, exhaustion, or hours of infection or even days after the fight. Other animals are often euthanized. Some owners train their dogs for fights using smaller animals such as cats, rabbits, or small dogs. These “tempting” animals are often obtained by stealing pets or are obtained by advertisements in the press: “I need a pet, or I adopt a puppy. ”.
Dogs used for fighting have been bred through many generations to be dangerously aggressive towards other animals. The presence of these dogs in a community increases the risk of attacks not only on other animals but also on people. Children are especially at risk because their small size can cause a fighting dog to perceive a child as another animal.
At the beginning these dogs were used to fight against bulls, to achieve this the bull was thrown boiling water in the ears to make it more violent, later he and the dogs were released, to see how much they could hang on some part of the bull. After the bull died, the dog did not leave the prey (bite), for this reason, they bet how many limbs the dog could amputate.
Later, when they fought against bears, their claws and teeth were cut off, and their body was protected with a kind of armour.
Already in another era, these dogs were used to work in the mines, since their great strength and small size were perfect for pulling carts. Dogfighting has been documented in the history of many different cultures, and it is presumed to have existed since the beginning of the domestication of animals. Many breeds have been specifically trained in strength, attitude and psychological aspects that made them the best dogs for fighting.
Historians speculate that large-scale human migration, the development of trade, and gifts among the royal courts of valuable fighting dogs facilitated the spread of fighting dog breeds. Fighting dogs were used in many military campaigns but large dogs were also offered as royal gifts.
Bloody sports that include fighting between animals have occurred since ancient times, the most famous being at the Colosseum in Rome during the Roman Empire. For more than six hundred years they continued to reach their peak in the 16th century, the different types of animals employed allowed the development of the breeds and basic anatomical shapes of dogs that we see today.
Dogfighting has been popular in many countries and is still practised legally and illegally around the world.
From an animal welfare point of view, dogfighting is the most serious cause of animal abuse, not only because of the violence that animals do during combat but also because animals frequently lose their lives.
Some studies have concluded that the more the dog suffers, the more resistant it becomes, and therefore a better fighter. This idea and the forced treatment of dogs is in stark contrast to the public values that prevail in many modern societies.
For many years, even after being outside the law, dogfighting has been considered an isolated activity within animal welfare, and while it was ignored, denied, or neglected by law enforcement agencies. However, the authorities were discovering that this clandestine culture is directly related to other types of criminal and violent activities.
