Dog fighting is a ‘blood sport‘ where dogs are set against one another in a ring or a pit to entertain sadistic spectators.
Money is made by those who organise this brutal activity. Dogs are often stolen from good homes and then used as bait ~ their fear spurring on the other dog made aggressive by human abuse.
Although dog fighting is illegal in South Africa it is widespread in certain areas. A dog fighting ring was uncovered by the NSPCA (SA) and 18 of the suspected perpetrators are now standing trial.
On Monday morning,17th August, I joined protesters at the court with posters of the actual dogs used in the dog fighting. Sadly these dogs had to be euthanized by the NSPCA.
Please let there be justice with due punishment for these perpetrators.
