Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

I have no words to express my disgust at any person who is involved in dog fighting. In this fighting, the fear of a “bait” dog spurs on another dog made aggressive by human abuse. Only a disturbed individual can enjoy this blood sport.

Although dog fighting is illegal in South Africa it is widespread in certain areas. A dog fighting ring was uncovered in Tsakane by the NSPCA (SA) in 2013. The NSPCA also found that children as young as nine were role-playing dogfights, “highlighting how deeply infused this violent crime is becoming in communities”.

Eighteen of the suspected perpetrators are now standing trial. Last Thursday I joined a protest outside the court. The Tsakane dog fighting trial was postponed yet again!

Where is justice! The accused have no remorse. When they left the court they showed vulgar signs at the protestors and even spat on a person. 

There are days when I just despair.

    Totally agree. It’s disgusting that men (never heard of women involved in dog-fighting) have to feel “macho” by watching dogs fighting and maiming or killing each other.

      Hi Pussycats3.
      I wish these men would find harmless ways to feel macho – like arm wrestling >:O
      These dogs fight and die in the most horrific ways.
      It seems in this particular case women were involved. Often they run the syndicate or get involved in the stealing of dogs. The women were as vulgar towards the protesters as were the men!

      Isn’t it just terrible, Maggie? The worst thing is that many of the dogs who are used as bait are stolen pets from unsuspecting people. Imagine the fear these poor creatures experience ~ shudder +++++

    At least the vulgar signs and spitting show that the protesters are getting to them in some way!

    Empathise with your despair Emy. The real despair comes from the fact that those with the power and authority to end and properly punish those that commit these heinous crimes do little at best and NOTHING at worst! They are the pontius pilates of this day and age. Shame on them.

    I understand your despair, it’s a sick sad world we live in, so much cruelty and abuse to animals. I cannot understand the mentality of such people. It makes me uneasy to think that we are the same species and have to live in close proximity and share the same air as these vile people.
